Ok I’ve missed a couple of WIT’s, self imposed time off, so back into the fray.

So who is this? He was the instigator of an award that was cherished by the recipient as well as him being his field commander.

Hi NF

Yep that’s the fellow, pictured in the late 1940’s, with his American adopted name of Henry Grant, where he had emigrated at the start of WW2.

Ooh, was the Maharaja the man who owned the Elveden estate? Splendid GW memorial by the A11.

I note that Elveden was actually owned by the Guinnesses during the GW.
