I wouldn't say unsung heroes Linda the first British airborne operation of the war under the command of then Major John Frost and the 1953 film " The Red Beret " was based on this and other early airborne raids. Brave men non the less who all potential airborne forces are taught about during training.
Oh thanks for that, I didnt realise that film was partly based on that. Many times I said to him that he should have his stories put down on paper but he didnt like talking about it much until much later in his life. Im not sure which Commando unit he was in but I think my brother knows.
After being injured during one of the raids, he then served in the REME working on Sherman tanks (and other things of course).
There cant be many survivors left now I wouldnt have thought.
