I am looking for anybody who fought with my late Father RSM Andrew Fallan of 44th Royal Marine Commando. Anything you could tell me about him would be greatly appreciated. He fought in the Burma campaign.
I can find no reference to a Regimental Sergeant Major (RSM) Andrew Fallan, however I have found reference in Burma to a Company Sergeant Major (CSM) Andrew Fallan in 1946.
The London Gazettes record the fact that PO/X 100915 CSM Andrew Fallan received a Mention in Despatches for "gallant and distinguished services in Burma". There are 2 entries the latter correcting an error.
Do you have a photo of him from his time in 44RM Commando ?
Pete Rogers, son of LSgt Joe Rogers MM & nephew of TSM Ken McAllister. Both No2 Cdo. God and the Soldier, all men adore, In time of danger and not before. When the danger is passed and all things righted, God is forgotten, and the Soldier slighted.
