132513 Maj Bill FRASER, Gordon Highlanders & SAS Original

  1. Yes - I think his medals went at the same time. :) I have his passport and there's a section called "Special peculiarities" where it says "wounds to back of leg" My father was obviously impressed with him and spent a bit of time with him, I suppose. Presumably he had no family to give his or Frasers things to. A bit sad but nice to remember him too. Major JJ Heath.jpg

    The S/No. 8605 on the metal dog-tag relates to Act/Capt. W. Fraser, 2/ Gordons and is from the Great War, the W. Fraser of SAS fame was initially 2876787 1/Gordons, he was commissioned 2/Lt. on 25/05/40. and his S/No. was 132513.
    Was then 8605 his father as both his father and grandfather i believe served with the Gordons.
    As for the fibre dog-tags, Mayne's religious denomination is correct so that looks legit as does Frasers fibre dog-tags.

  4. Hi Alan,
    Thanks very much for looking at these. Interesting. It does seem highly likely that the Great war ones belonged to Bills' father. Just to confirm, you think that the fibre Fraser tags are WWII Bill Frasers?

    Hello Douglas,
    with no S/No. on either i wouldn't like to say yay or nay, not much of an answer i know but there is nothing to prove either are legit. I'd like to think they are but...

    Alan.
     
  6. OK. Ta for that. Skip replied. I'm going to check with my brother but I think we'll see if the SAS Regimental Association wants them as a donation. Cheers. Douglas
