Sorry Jason, I havent been on the site for a while, TV program called SAS Operation Tombola, I have it on DVD, I can't figure out how to contact or message members on this site but I have a copy if you would like it?
Did you know that a short piece of video exists (this photo is a frame from it) I spotted it on a tv program about SAS Operation Tombola (they have obviously used some archive footage from other operations in the making of the program) I have it on DVD if you are interested.
Chris, see my comments on one of your photos. If I am right your photos are of this same operation so the date would be December 27th 1944
John (Gargan) if you check out the photo below titled 2 SAS (3 Squadron) group, back row 3rd from the right is T Gargan
Third in from the left with the flying goggles I am almost positive is Chris Leng SOE who was first to drop into Rossano on Galia,
He is in the Galia photo wearing the same goggles
and third in from the right looks very like Ted Robinson, one of the radio operators.
They both flew in the same...
I know that Gordon Rose was definately in the group that dropped into Rossano, and from pictures I have, 6th from left in the back row certainly looks like him, so the chances are that your list of names is correct johnjelly. ps, would that be Brindisi Airdrome?
