Cpl Peter "Danny" Danells was killed by enemy fire during a Claret (cross border) operation during the 'Confrontation' with Indonesia on 4th November 1965.
He is buried at Kranji Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery in Singapore.
His daughter was born while he was on deployment, and so he never had the opportunity to see her.
RIP, oppo. I think of you often.

Pete Rogers, son of LSgt Joe Rogers MM & nephew of TSM Ken McAllister. Both No2 Commando.
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.

**** nb. I no longer monitor the pm facility ****
