    Does anyone have a list of the men of Force 135 or where I can find one? I have tried the archives.

    Thanks in advance.

    I wasn’t able to find your list but did find quite a few documents from the LST’s that were part of this operation. I will email you a link to the Dropbox file

    cheers

    Post 33 by AB64 in Officers Record of Service Book (Army Book 439) has an entry and documents for:
    An odd Post 297 by TTH in: Non-standard, substitute standard, and captured weapons in British and Commonwealth service which indicates the Royal Artillery were there and states (in part):
    This shows the CO Brigadier A E Snow and a little more:
    From: On this day 9th May | Royal Signals Museum

    A short list of the units involved:

    The article was written two years ago, but the Mr Lamerton mentioned there seems to be a reputable source of information with 26 years of research on the subject.
    Would be worth a try for me:
    Inside 'Operation Nestegg'...

    Nick, are you looking for the Liberation of all the Channel Islands?
    I have seen what the Wehrmacht did in Guernsey, not sure about Alderney, Jersey, Herm and Sark?

    I did receive a document: Officers of the Small Scale Raiding Force.
    I think they were all Brits though.

    Stefan.

    Hi Stefan

    I have a lot of docs on the Small Scale Raiding Force and am working on a blog about it.

    Thanks
    Nick

    Nick,
    One of my Guernsey contacts sent me the message:
    Mark Lamerton from Jersey wrote two books about the subject.

    Nick, have you looked at these books?
