Reg.Chick was my uncles brother in law.We have no knowledge of his war record
Read about Operation Bulbasket.
My Father's Sister, my Aunty Nancy (Nan) was married in 1943 to Cpl Reginald Chick
He died in action on the 7th July 1947, in France.
1 SAS regiment during Operation Bulbasket.
Quite a story sad that it is, SAS operations behind enemy lines, betrayal and execution.
