Gents I have just come across a program on the local Satalite TV, an obsure channel which is not listed in the TV guide. The title of the 30 min documentary was 'Gadiators of WW II' and it turned out to be about the SAS. Many film strips shot at the time including one showing Calvert as Brig SAS toward end of war, taking a Regimental 'Colours' parade. At one point however they state that when the D Day invasion took place a 'team' where dispatched with the express intention of assasinating F.M. Erwin Rommel. I know that Stirling authorised a raid on Rommel back in the desert days but I have never heared about this second attempt. The prog mentioned that the raid failed as Rommel was severly wounded in a fighter ground attack. Does anyone have further knowledge on this second raid. john The 'Colours' where actually Gidions complete with regimental badge.
