Joe, who is 91 years young, was a late joiner to No 1 Commando. He has sent me a transcript of an article he wrote about his life in the Army.

I have now placed this on the site and it can be accessed either on the link via the gallery image for Joe here:

or in the main archive here:

Thanks Joe for allowing us to post it on our website.
