Dave,

There are no service papers for this man which might have shed more light on the matter.

That is very thorough research, Dave, and would appear to set the record straight on this matter.

Many thanks
David

Slightly off topic, I know. In the next DNW sale is the GVI MM group to Talana Herbert Edward Walters who was born on 2 December 1921 and served with the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers during the Second World War.

An unusual first name. I wonder if there is a connection?

I cannot see anyone with this surname at Talana.
