The Guardian ran a great article today, 25 Nov 2017, about Larry Stephens a Captain in No.5 Commando and, post-war, a very talented and successful radio & tv scriptwriter...
It would seem that talent runs in the family as the article was written by Larry's cousin, fellow Associate Member, Julie Warren.
Julie, a member of the CVA Research Group, has carried out in-depth research for the CVA but is far too modest to tell us of her achievements, so it falls to me to sing her praises.

Some of the issues of today's Guardian carry a link to the CVA...
Thanks and well done Julie.
