Sorry about the title, I wasn't sure which part was the best bit to put!! My husbands Grandfather Charlie Cox joined the TA (Beds & Herts Regt) in 1938. He was called up in 1939, and at some point after that joined No 7 Commando. He was captured in Crete in 1941 and spent the rest of the war in Stalag IV-A. When he returned home in 1945 he was too ill to be demobbed so he was transfered to become a military policeman until 1947 when he was well enough to leave the Army. We have been told by a relative that he was on HMS Glengyle at some point, and the photograph below has "Cape Town 1941" written on the back. He didn't really speak about the war, other than a couple of funny stories about his time as a POW. We have some photographs of his time as a POW and I have sent those to the Commando Veterans website at my husbands request so that they can add them to their gallery.
