Lt Col Peter Miller

#2
He served with the Transjordan Frontier Force, 1935-41, then as a squadron commander of 6th Royal Tank Regiment in the Western Desert, where he was taken prisoner at the battle of Sidi Rezegh. He escaped from a prisoner-of-war camp in Italy in 1943, and made a 600-mile walk south in an attempt to reach the Allied lines but was betrayed and recaptured. He remained a prisoner until the end of the war.
A brave man as well as a very inventive one!

Rest In Peace, Sir.
