    Hi all
    I have been reading lots of great threads on this forum and several books looking for information on the 8th Parachute Battalion.
    Does anyone know if there is a list of other 8th battalion members who were on Lt Col Alistair Pearson's aircraft from RAF Blakehill Farm 5th June Operation Tonga.

    Have you consulted his biography?

    A Fierce Quality : A Biography of Brigadier Alastair Pearson, CB, DSO***, OBE, MC, TD, HML. By Julian James (London: Leo Cooper).

    Hi, thanks for the suggestion.

    Yes I've read it a couple of times, but I haven't seen any reference to his Chalk on DDAY.
