    Great post...two quick questions.

    First, in the narrative, who is Private Thorne?

    Second, does Army Air Corps, in the context of 1947, mean The Parachute Regiment?

    Here is Thorne's BEM citation for the same action, it was a name mispelling above. There is a slight difference in their citations.

    They are said to be from 1st Parachute battalion.

    The Army Air Corps, during and for a while after the war comprised the Parachute Regiment and the Glider Pilot Regiment.
