Correction- Lt JH (Johnny) Wiehe (183225), SAS died 9th September 1965, in Mauritius, of wounds received while behind the lines, in France, during WW2. (source 'SAS Band of Brothers', By Damian Lewis; Quercus, London 2020 :- 385pp). He was born in Mauritius in 1916~ same source as before.
 
My wife is the daughter of Herbert Castelow MM who served with Johnny in the SAS and took part in the Garstin Stick mission. We have arranged to meet Johnny's relatives in Mauritius and to lay a wreath in a few months time. Damian Lewis expedited this, brilliant writer and a very good man.
