I have discovered that my mothers brother William Watson Pattison was with the commandos for a short period of time and looking for any information about his time there.
He enlisted with the Cameronians in 1939 and from an obituary on his death it says that he transferred to the Commandos and escaped from Crete in a barge. Then obtained a commission 2nd Lt with Durham Light Infantry and was killed in his first engagement within hours of arriving on 7th December 1941.
He is buried at Tobruk.

Any info other than above would be great
many thanks

Hi Susan

Are you able to post the Obituary on here or advise me where it was from? Post a photo of William as well if you have one. Any problems just contact me by email link below.

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.
