While stationed at STC Lochailort in 1940-42, my father Ernest Dale illustrated this manual.
I should be grateful if anyone who has a copy could let me know. I should be interested in purchasing it, or copying it with your agreement.
His memoirs are published on line at http://waryears.wordpress.com .
Thanking you in advance,

Thank you so much for this!

My dad, George Francis Harris, was at Achdalieu, Lochailort and Achnacarry. It's wonderful to read about your dad.

If I have praised my comrades too highly I make no apology, for they were beyond all praise.

Dear Eileen,
Thank you for your enthusiastic response.
Lochailort was the happiest time of my father's life. I'm proud I got him to write it down.
Am visiting Lochailort and Mallaig in June.

Whenever we were up in Dundee, visiting mam's relatives, dad would drive us over there - he was never happier than when he was in that area. Long before dad got a car, an aunt or uncle would drive us ... I've been visiting that area since I was a tot.

If you're passing Morpeth, Northumberland, give me a shout and I'll gladly sit on your roof-rack.

I think that was probably the happiest time of my dad's life, too. My mam once said that he 'enjoyed' the war ... meaning the camaraderie.

If I have praised my comrades too highly I make no apology, for they were beyond all praise.
