    It is too bad people don't know/don't care about a family member's service, but it happens. You got a nice lot, it is good that you saved it.

    Great items Dave, good to see you saved them from an uncaring Vet's family.

    A related item I thought you might like to see, a copy of Commando by Brigadier John Durnford-Slater, commander of No.3 commando, signed by him with a dedication,

    'To Karl,

    No hard feelings'

    and dated 1976. I got it from a charity shop in Cardiff about 10 or more years back.
