Hi Paul, That is so spooky, I have just this afternoon read a small account of one such man in the book 'Testaments of Honour' by Blake Heathcote. The man in question Charles Scot-Brown was Canloaned to the Gordon Highlanders in 1943, went in on D-Day, was wounded, joined 1st Para after and was in Operation Market Garden. Book was published in 2002, might be a chance there? Will that do you? Steve. I am Charles Scot-Brown , and have just registered with the forum .
