    My Great Uncle James Ratcliffe was awarded the George Cross but on the website it didn't have his name. he was awarded it for delousing 96 unexploded bombs that feel on a German prison camp.

    All the known information about Kenneth Horsfield, including the citation,apart from that unknown source used by Captain Bonner, is shown at Kenneth Horsfield GC, increasingly the assertion that he was in the SAS begins to look baseless. SAS has no such records and it doesn't make much sense, even if this was war time.
