    Private Diary: May 1940, 51st Highland Division, Lt-Col. H.R. SWINBURN

    The Divisional Commander who was accompanied by the British Liaison Officer (Captain G. KOCH de GOOREYND) visited the SWAYNE Mission at the H.Q. (G.Q.G.) of General GEORGES at LA FERTE SOUS JOUARRE. Here the position of the B.E.F. was explained and the delicate situation on the SOMME outlined. At the time the embarkation of the B.E.F. and the French from DUNKERQUE was just beginning and after their departure the only British formations which were remaining in FRANCE were to be the 51st Division and the 1st Armoured Division.

    Captain Gerard KOCH de GOOREYND, liaison officer between 51st Division and the French in 1940, was a different KOCH de GOOREYND of the Irish Guards. Related but not the same.
