A new book about Major Douglas Waugh of 46 Recce
Captain Waugh's War
Who wrote this ?
The 46th Div's emblem was the oak tree, it looks like an oak tree.
The cap badge of the Recce Corps / Recce Regt looked like a Xmas tree, due to the lightning flashes in it.
Designed by Tpr George Jones, 56 Recce, adopted 29 July 1941.
Mind you, having spent years dodging bullets in Africa, Sicily and Italy, it would cost you 6d if you wanted one!
Hugh Lake, Major Waugh's son in law, wrote it.
I was very sorry to hear of Douglas Waugh's passing in 2019. I was in touch with him until 2018 and we corresponded for a while after I met him at the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Monte Cassino in Italy in May 2014.
Yes, it is very sad. I am sad I did not get to see Douglas Waugh to say goodbye. Always so witty and thoughtful.
Douglas Waugh had a large loving family who took very good care of him always so he was surrounded with support and kindness.
He lived to 101! A sign that caring families keep you going.
