    Lance Corporal Thomas Beal
    4th Battalion Kings Own Scottish Borderers
    Casualty

    In his fantastic memoir With the Jocks, Peter White noted of Beal..

    "..Corporal Beal, one of my Section Commanders in the most isolated of the Platoon positions overlooking a snow-covered track in the woods, set up notoriety for seeing things during his spells on stag. Almost every night we heard the lonely chatter and echo of his Sten gun at some time or other. He was killed a few weeks later."
