Recently found in Honour to the Airbourne this:
My father was mentioned in despatches as part of 1st SAS B Squadron in 10th May 1945
then later in the book awarded the Croix de Guerre with Silver Star for Operation Pistol as part of A squadron 2SAS in 1945 also.

Had he moved from one to the other or is this a typo. Any thought s on that - I thought he had never been in 1st SAS.
