I was surfing the Internet and came across this site and I was amazed to see that you had my Grandfather on it. I have a copy of the citation that is on here, my grandfather was a lovely man although I can only remember him vaguely. It is really great to see that his memory is living on. I know my father sill comes out with snippets of what his father did during the war. I have been to Maybole many times and I think that the town is lovely; the people there are so friendly and warm. Any way it is so nice to see part of my family history on the Internet. I will keep looking now I have found it. Yours, Irene Greening (nee McIntyre) March 2004
