Photo of Officers 1st Bn Jan 1943

Postby jimsigs » Mon Jan 18, 2010 10:01 am

Hi There,

Amongst the photos on the general photo page is one of the Officers of the 1st Bn taken at Harrow on 1st January 1943.
Have you access to the names of these officers as I believe my late Father - then Lt James F Purdy is standing in 2nd row, 4th from the right.

Your kind help would be greatly appreciated


Warmest Regards

Hi Jim,

If you click on the small photo of the 1st Battalion Officers in the PHOTO section you will get a larger copy of the photo with all the names. As far as I am aware from the information I have your father is not one of them.

Regards,

Thanks so much Louis,

I have check the names OK. Your right, my late Father is not one of them.
It was strange to think one of them looked like him from a distance. Also, I know from his records that he did not return from the Middle-East until 1944. Thought perhaps Dad was on a 'secret mission' and didn't mention it to anyone at Records. :lol:

Warmest Regards as always
