90 yesterday


Happy birthday to Jack Paley ex 2 SAS - 90 yesterday.

I remember seeing Jack Paley for the first time in about 1955. He visited my father, who was them RSM 3 Para, at Aldershot. He arrived on a motorcycle. The next time that i saw him we were both very much older and it must have been after 1997 because my father was dead by Jacks second visit to us in Yorkshire. Jack hailed from Leeds so we took him over there to see his relatives. He had visited my father over the years several times on his visits from Canada. jack was on several SAS operations - Rupert and Canuck at least. Lovely man.

So Jack if you are reading this 'Happy Birthday'.
