Our thanks to Chris Bennett for sharing over 30 photos of 42RM Commando from the collection of his father, Philip Bennett, who served in 42 RM Cdo. These are in addition to previous ones that he had already provided. The gallery can be viewed here:

Here is the modern Saig Kung via Streetview. Most Probably only the hills in the distance look familiar to somebody from 1946 !

It is a lovely town, I was there this year, very popular with families and Expats.

The more I learn about the Commandos, the less I realise I know.
