I was talking to my wifes Grandad while we were down in Cornwall. He's a top bloke, just short of 90 but with all his marbles. He fought in WW2 with the Duke of Cornwalls Light Infantry and is a lairy old codger who likes nothing more than recounting his scrapping stories. A mate of his died last year and I said i'd do a bit of looking up on the internet for him. He was called Harry Despaigne, who started the war as a tom but finished as a half colonel. According to Grandad in law, he was a right dude. They were in basic together, but Harry went on to clean up on the medal front. Because his mum was french and he was fluent, he spent most of his time working with the resistance etc. I've just done a quick search on google etc, but can't get his name pitching up anywhere. Either Hughs' a massive bullsh*tter or i'm looking in the wrong places. Any suggestions?
