    Hi Pete T

    Got your message about the MoD advice to relatives (Whoops - there is many a slip twixt cup and lip). Unfortunately my Uncle's file on Martin is currently in Kent (with the last surviving family member from Martin's generation) while I am in Cheshire. I'll go and retrieve the file as soon as possible (but probably not until March when my next visit there is pencilled in my diary) and let you have (as a pdf) a complete copy - I'll also, eventually, correct Martin's document.

    Kind regards

    Jeremy Crispin
