    Have just copied the above 3 posts from the ''Kilts in BEF'' thread as I think it's a powerful photo that ought to get another viewing as it was the Anniversary yesterday.

    Remembering today Tom McCormack, 5 Troop (Liverpool Scottish), No 2 Commando, who this day in 1942 died of wounds sustained at the St Nazaire Raid a fortnight earlier. :poppy:

    His grave marker at Rennes with the poppy wreath with Forbes tartan we placed on the 70th Anniversary of Operation Chariot in 2012 and a picture of Tom from Paignton before the raid.
