I believe it is Colonel James Shortt, The Baron Castleshort , Commander of the Royal Galloglas Guard, Chevalier of The Royal Yugoslavian Order of St John, Knight Commander of Polonia Restituta (2nd division), Knight Commander of St Gregory, Knight of the Belgian Crown and Knight of Honour of the Imperial Teutonic Order of St. Marys Hospital in Jerusalem, SAS (Rtd)
