    Great.
    Maj Barstow was later Maj-Gen GOC 9 Ind Div, missing in the Malaya fighting.

    Interestingly, I could not find AE Barstow listed on the CWGC site. He was killed in Jan 42 but there seems to be no record with CWGC.

    Great find guys, thanks for sharing!

    It seems the book was republished a few years ago if anyone is looking for a physical copy. I wonder if there are ebooks?

    PS: I wasn't able to paste the link in my post either, I had to turn the editor off (the switch icon) to make it work.
