James served with 62 Commando and the Small Scale Raiding Force and was awarded a Mention in Dispatches and the Croix de Geurre for his deeds on the SOE inter-allied mission TILLEUL (Lime Tree). Last year the Commando Association presented James with a replacement green beret just in time for his prestigious award of the Legion d' Honneur in Perth, Australia.
Our thoughts are with James's wife Valerie and his family in Australia and Italy.
Rest in Peace James - gone but never forgotten.
