Hi John,

I hope you will read this one day soon. I have information about CSM Cheevers including a copy of his citation for his DCM. Have you seen the photograph of him with RSM Livingstone, taken in Burma in late April 1943. Both men were instrumental in leading men back to India safely and were top men from column 8 on Longcloth.

Regards

Steve Fogden
