Hi all, This is my first post on here. I wonder if anyone could perhaps point me in the right direction to a source regarding an exploit allegedly carried out by Tatham-Warter's at Arnhem? It is often said that he led a charge; swinging his umbrella round his head and wearing a bowler hat. I have been searching for the primary source for this but have been unable to find one. This link (Major Digby Tatham-Warter) suggests it has come from Major Gough.* The reason for me wanting to pin this down is that I am commissioning a large oil painting by a prolific war-artist showing 'Digby' leading his men in an attack at Arnhem, donning his bowler hat whilst swinging his brolly round his head. I have been able to locate the sources for some of his other well-known exploits whilst others - chiefly him thrusting his brolly through the slit of an armoured car (or tank, depending on the source) - I am doubting occurred (again, I would be grateful to learn of a primary source to prove me wrong) I am wondering if there is a source either by Gough, or quoting Gough, which confirms that Digby's bowler hat charge took place. If not, I may need to rethink the painting! Thanks in advance. Neil * Even old hands like Major Freddie Gough became disheartened when Mark IV Tanks crossed the Bridge and the battle seemed lost, but his gloom lifted instantly when he caught sight of Digby leading a bayonet charge against German infantry who had dared to enter British territory; carrying a pistol in one hand, madly swinging his umbrella about his head with the other, and now sporting a bowler hat on his head - which he had obtained from God knows where - doing his best to look like Charlie Chaplin.
