    Not him then. His service number is quite long so I wonder if he was promoted from the ranks.


    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I have the book "Tunisian Tales; The 1st Parachute Brigade in North Africa 1942-43" by Niall Cherry. It has an extensive list of names, but no one named Barnes, officer or o/r.
