    366533 Alec REID of 8th DLI captured 24/10/42 I think this would be 2nd Alamein - he escaped and made it to Switzerland from where he returned to the UK late 1944

    Thanks for that, do you think that would be held as patient or staff?

    I had added this to my Airborne thread before but it should be here too, 326753 David HARRISON, originally Leicestershire Yeomanry, then RA (not sure if still with the Leicestershire Yeomanry after they converted or if he transferred to another RA unit) then on the Glider Pilot Regiment - he was in North Africa as shown below but not sure what unit at that point - Normandy and Arnhem he was 1st Pilot on Horsa's with Sgt Ward his 2nd Pilot - at Arnhem he was captured - casualty returns had said wounded and missing and the presence of the Silver Badge seems to back this up. For Normandy he carried either RUR or RAMC, for Arnhem he carried 2 jeeps of C troop 1st Airborne Recce. If anyone can add any info it would be most welcome - I have the Arnhem Raid report by his tug pilot thanks to Matt at the GPR society​
