This picture of my father was taken towards the end of the war. I have several photos of him in Siwa when he was in the LRDG and with the aid of the local historian there I found the actual sites of these. I also have several of him with his radio operators in the PPA. Does anyone know where I can find any more pictures of him, perhaps in the SAS? Angela Mayne

There are quite a few photographs of him with PPA on his roster page :
If you have any photographs that you would like to share you can add them to that page or send by email. :)
Thanks, Craig
