I just thought it was worth raising the history of my uncle. He dropped into Palestine with 16 Brigade (I think) and spent two years in the area. He was captured and stoned by the Jews after a mission went wrong and the officer who he was with was killed; as well as this he was in an RTA resulting in the death of the daughter of a local prince/sheik. Various missions he was involved in were not traced as far as I can find out. My cousin met up with a group of old Paras post 11 Nov a few years ago who when they found out the connection were forthcoming with some info but my cousin is a civvie so his information is not reliable. I tried the airborne forces museum but they went strangley quiet. Anyone have any idea of how to go forward?
