POUNCE

Hi John.

This is my Grandad, he was awarded the MBE and later OBE and finished off as a Lt. Colonel in the Scots Guards. I've got some writings of his detailing his 'blagging' a ride from North Africa to Durban in 1941 where my Grandmother had given birth to my Mum in his absence! I'll try and dig them out.
