Post  Aussie Nick on Sat Feb 06, 2010 10:08 pm



Jim Todd. Sheppard?, Wally Walsh, Ginge Owen, Rob Barker , Ashbury, Bobby Welsh.
Billy Malcomson, Self, Dave Smith, Maj Churchill, Bob Turner, Mick Lawes, Danny Haddon.

I think young Sheppard died as a result of a parachuting accident (Embolism)

Rear rank C/Sgt J Holborn, 3 Para. Pte M Flavell 1 Para.
3rd Nil
2nd rank Maj Larry Orpen-Smellie, 3 Para. Sgt C Woodward, 3 Para (Winner). Pte M McIntyre, 3 Para.
Front Cpl R Nicholson, 3 Para. RQMS N Carter M.M. Depot Para and AB Forces.

Seven out of the top thirty in the Army, not bad for the Parachute Regiment.

Bill, I wasn't in "C" Coy on the Norway Ex. I was still in Spt Coy. In fact I went to Norway with Sid Roberts on the advance party for the A/tks. I managed to take a slice out of my thumb with an axe preparing kindling for the stoves which were the centre tent pole for those sexy tents at Trondheim, Tug will confirm this. It was my first time abroad apart from going to England from Scotland.

Hi Nick,

Loved Norway & Trondheim I am trying to take the motor home on a trip Maureen said she would like to go to The North Cape but that is a B****y long way. Great in those tents I seem to remember especially once you got that stove burning.

Hi Nick,

On reflection looking at the photo again that is definatley the Woodward who was in C Coy, perhaps he was only known as Bank Book to his friends. Mind you I think he was in Vic Chews Section and half of them were barking Vic was the worst!!
