I was talking to Willie Hervo and he wrote "Hi Bill I was talking to his daughter Margaret and she was telling me he was an instructor at Achnacarry. Next time i see her i will ask for a photo."

Might be an idea to ask Willie Hervo.

Our dear friend Jochem has given approximante dates for Flushing next year.

He wrote "The date for the main remembrance will be on the 26th of October 2019 and will carry on to the 3th of November. When I have more details I Will let you all know."

I will update when he contacts me.

Hi Brian

Nick will get round to it. He does this work as a volunteer so bear with him and I know he is very busy most of the time.

Many of us are involved in a various jobs for the CVA and we have to fit it into normal life.

I like Nick am a son of a WW2 Commando.

Best wishes when you get his expert reply.

Thoughts on Armistice 2018 Achnacarry, Fort William and Spean Bridge.
We will remember them - I have been coming since I was young to remember my Dad Gnr W Y (Bill) Harvey No 4 Army Commando who was kia 1/11/44 Flushing Netherlands and also remember his comrades. I remember so many of the original WW2 Commandos who supported us "the Bairns" after the war and gave us that great ethos to support one another no matter what. We all bring our memories and heartfelt thoughts to the memorial and shed our tears but the tears are there all year in our hearts. The young Commandos, the Local Primary School and High School and local people of Lochaber do us proud. We meet new friends connect with old friends all bringing our memories, our sadness, our good and bad days to remember. Most important we meet at Spean Bridge Commando Memorial to remember as a Commando family who will support each other during the year to come. United We Conquer.

Stephane was up at the Spean Bridge Commando Memorial today with us all relatives of No 4 Commando. He is one of our great supporters from France.

Best wishes.

Bill
