NOTES & SOURCES

1      *Source:  Hazelwood School War Memorial

2      **Published memoirs of his Greek Campaign “Last on the List” 1974, Lee Cooper Ltd.

Contradiction here about location in Apr ’42 between Hazelwood School and “Last in the Line”.

Archivist suspects the latter wins.

3      ***“Escaped” from Colditz by feigning false illness for successful Repatriation to UK, Dec 1944.
