Here is an extract of part of the No.2 Commando War Diary for 5 September 1944:
Monopoli - Arrival of draft from U.K. of 3 Officers and 53 O.R.'s
I have an unofficial handwritten list of those who served in No.2 Commando. It lists a Pte. D.P. Jarram (same service number) as being returned to his unit 3 November 1944. From the date you stated he joined 5 September 1944 this would be 2 months. Between October and November in excess of 20 men are listed as Returned to Unit for a number of reasons.
I would stress that this list is unofficial and the Service Record should be checked for full details.
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.
