U.S. Air bases. Is the author of  several books. Andrew at the present time is a supervisor in a

serving in the R.A.F. as a 
military policeman  both at home and abroad including Egypt.
 
 Ted Morris
(1913) served in the R.A.S.C.in France, Italy, Belgium Holland and Norway and 
was actually a G.I. for a while after being rescued by American troops when 
his unit was all but wiped out by an S.S. division  Ted despite being shot 
twice survived and with a few survivors fought on with the Americans until 
they could rejoin a British command and be re issued with British uniforms and 
kit.

France Italy and Germany.

 


Noel Griffiths is believed to have been one of the Welsh farmers who during 
WW11 was recruited into "The secret army" of potential resistance fighters to
sabotage  Nazi efforts if we had been invaded. Members had bunkers and secret 
arms dumps on their land. They were trained in the use of arms and explosives. Noel would never 
speak  about this as they had been sworn under the 
official secrets act but after he died I found papers in his effects refering to this subject and 
recruitment papers which I passed on to his daughter.

Roy (Ron) Stock in WW11 was an R.A.F. tail gunner in a bomber and due to the 
hazzards of the job was lucky to come through unscathed.

Bob Clarke also served in WW11 as R.A.F. aircrew and was also one of the lucky 
few to return.

During WW1 Stan Palmer was awarded the military medal postumously after he had 
rescued wounded comrades under fire. actions which finally got him killed.
He has no known grave but is remembered on the large memorial at Ploegsteert
military cemetary in Belgium........
