    Gnr. Francis Hugh McGinley (1463033) 212 (WY) Airlanding Light Battery, Royal Artillery,

    WO 373/186/1769

    McGinley was an FOO gunner with Capt. Harrington and David King dropped with 3rd Parachute Brigade; all landed in the flooded Dives valley. Seems to be the only FOO team operating of 3rd Parachute Brigade on D-Day.
