I am currently researching into Loyton, i would be very keen to learn more about.
I have been to the moussey village with my father SQMS John Alcock of 2SAS. We went there is 1982 and saw the graves together before we moved on to his own operational area further north. In this image I have sent to you my father is the tallest man on the right holding a glass of beer - which they all are - at this time he was CSM to 3 Para in the 1950s. I will try to contact you through the email provided by you. Father was ex-Coldstream Guards. - Graham Alcock
The photograph shows my father is the second man from the right side -to the right of him Robinson and to his left Jack Paley - it must be a post-war reunion for 2 SAS.

Saw this - my father was due to jump from the second plane after Reynolds into Loyton but the pilot aborted the idea - could not see the ground signals. So he went a week later on Operation Pistol with the same officer for his Loyton flight who was captain Scott.

My own father was due to drop into Loyton on the 7th of September 1944. he was in one of two aircraft. The first dropped its men but my father's [lane aborted the drop over the drop area as he could not see any ground signals. His officer for this drop was Captain Scott. A week later, now back at Keevil, dad flew off for operation Pistol. he was lucky as 30 men from Loyton were captured and executed - including Reynolds
