Did Edward Gilling ever publish his account of the St. Nazaire raid?
Many thanks

Guy, I have not seen anything. All I know was that he was an Exchange Telegraph correspondent on board ML307. Perhaps a good person to ask would be CVA Associate member and author of Storming St Nazaire, James Dorrian. His website contact details are at the bottom of the page here: http://www.jamesgdorrian.com/

Pete,
Thanks, I will give that a try.

He also accompanied No.1 Commando on Operation Bristle in June 1942.
