    Does anyone have D Squadron 2nd SAS War Diaries covering landings at Taranto to November 11 1943?

    Looking for specific references to Lt. Peter Harold Jackson.

    I already have Winged Dagger and information from Para Data but would like to see diaries for myself.

    Does anyone know if photos exist of their time in Italy?

    Many thanks.

    I have most of the SAS files from the WO 218 series at TNA, do you know which operation he was on?

    Hi Daniel,

    Both The Regiment by Asher and Gavin Mortimer's The SAS in World War II have accounts of D Squadron's actions in Italy especially in regard to the stand at Termoli. Jackson gets a brief mention in the latter. the Mortimer book has an undated group photo with only Mackie identified standing right rear. There's also a rough photo of SAS men in trenches at Termoli in the Asher book, the impression given is it's of 1 SAS men? Any books or stories on Roy Farran during this period might yield further information.

    Regards ...
