    Nice pic !!! On left, Col Rhys-Corwen ??? No 1 Special Services Regiment, The Greys ????
    Not according to the info I have. He was probably the greatest of all the WWII SAS members and was a renowned nutter! The other was also very famous and I was reading about an incident today where he insisted on being given parachute training and took his first jump all in one day and broke his back. He had previously been famous for his involvement on Crete. Probably too many clues.

    This is the picture i have:

    Col Rhys-Corwen (Centre) with members of 1 SAS in 1944. Just visible is the WALES shoulder title and the SAS style cap badge with dragon backing on his Grey Beret











    Originally a Light Infantry Regiment, the Greys were disbanded in 1935. They became the Army’s first SF unit in 1941. Its creator, Colonel Iwan Rhys-Corwen a former CO of the Greys when it had been an infantry unit, saw how the irregular fighters of 1940 had created havoc with the Whermacht during the period of chaos that was the ‘occupation’. His friend David Stirling of the British Army, instrumental in creating the SAS, held many of the same ideas and beliefs. As Rhys-Corwen deployed with the Welsh Expeditionery Brigade to North Africa the pair met up again and the G (for Greys) Troop was born over numerous Gin and Tonics in the Savoy bar, Cairo.
