    Hello! I wonder if anyone could help identify the officers in this image! (Second from right is Capt. Cecil (Snowball) Hood who was captured at Winnezeale, 30/5/40 He was HAC in 140th RFA, 367 Bty, and was one of the last to be in Cassel. I believe the man second from left to be Norman (Tubby) Layton... and wonder if the central figure is Major Christopherson? This image was taken at Laufen Castle and sent as a postcard home August 1941. I think John West has done a lot of work with Major Christopherson’s son.... perhaps somebody knows somebody? With fingers crossed and all thanks!

    Yes I'm sure 2nd from left is Major Christopherson.
    I have his grandsons contact details and other information if you'd like to make contact. Theres a contact option on the last page of the 140 rgt website.
    I'd very much like to hear from you. Regards John
