Whitehunter, go for it, send him a letter. It'll be fascinating to get a reply
Regards to all, Simon.
Ps, The brass whistle is cleaning up well, and research so far shows it to be the same as issued to US Military police. Photos to be posted soon
Any joy contacting the dog tags owner? Fascinating stuff when it can be traced to an individual - there won't be many more years of being able to contact them....
I sent the letter about 3 months ago no reply yet still got a little bit of hope. It would be nice to get a reply even if it was the wrong person
