Looking for someone I met at Arnhem-Oosterbeek War Cemetery

#1
This year, I was privileged to be able to take part in commemorating the fallen heroes at Arnhem-Oosterbeek War Cemetery (21.09.2008) and I must say that I couldn’t hold my tears back. Your armed forces were there in numbers of course and I ran into a couple of men from the AAC. To be honest, I asked if I could get a photo with them because they did look rather handsome (a girl loves a uniform, I do at least) and I completely forgot to get their names (so that I could thank them later).

Is there anyway that I can get a hold of them? Or is there anyone who knows them? I do have a picture of him/and those he was with but I didn’t want to post them right now as I don’t now if they’re in active service. Still, I did zoom in on some insignias to give you a clue.

Hmmm, the Usual Suspects spring to mind... was one a dashing 'young' thruster with copious amounts of Black Masking tape and a ball peen hammer on his person and the other a silver tongued rapscallion with a blistering SOH?





Haven't a clue who you could be on about. 8O

I did *hides* and it is corrected now. Damn lack of sleep messes with my spelling.

I think I know him. It's either Smudge, Taff or Dinger
Close but not quite.

Good point there Aunty S, surely the use of photo evidence on an open forum brings into question the issues of PerSec...well there'll be a few awkward questions if he's married and his other half sees em. :twisted:




PS. joking!
