Hi Katey,
I have just read your request for info on Lt Polley. There is a picture of "Parachute Party, 1 Coy., 1st Airborne Divisional Signals, September 1944" in St Vincents Church at Caythorpe. This was taken immediately before Arnhem. Lt Polley is in (on) it as is Maj (later General) Deanne-Drummond and Capt Smith (later Major and OC 16th Ind Para Bde Gp Signal Squadron)
I photographed this last time I was in Caythorpe and can send it to you if you wish.

I am searching for anyone who KNEW or SERVED with Lt David Arthur Polley-- he's in the famous photo of him giving Major Lonsdale a light after escaping capture at Arnhem by swimming the Rhine. Lt Col (Retired) David Polley lived in Surrey and died in 1984. I recently purchased a field made commando style knife of his. Any other photos of him during the War or after as well as any info or stories of him would be VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.
Thank you in advance!

Some good news amongst the sad news. From the 1/12/2015 16 Air Assault Brigade are doing away with the Screaming Budgie and will wear the Pegasus as their symbol of British AIRBORNE FORCES. Loads more details about it on the Sqn.facebook page. Other bit of news is that the Wagon and Horses at Caythorpe has been sold and being turned into a Restaurant and bakery. Not so good news for us that attend the Caythorpe reunion. Chris

URGENT WARNING. Received a SCAM email address to me from Glen Bartliff (supposedly) asking for a loan of money as he is in Cyprus with a sick relative. Spoke to Glen this morning in York !! He is aware of this scam and has cleared me to put this on the web site.

We will be meeting as usual at the NMA on Armistice Sunday to remember airborne friends and colleagues. Date this year is 8th November with the service starting around 10.00 - we usually meet at the main entrance around 09.30. We will be going to Branston G&CC after the remembrance ceremony for lunch and as always I need approximate numbers in order to book. Meal will be between 15 and 20 per head and to date it has been very good value. Please email or call me in the next week or so if you are planning to attend - jjc216@talk21.com or 07590 289633.

Such sad news about Jacky. Carol kept in regular contact over the past few years by phone and was optimistic about a positive outcome. Carol has taken the news badly as they spent time together in Louis Margaret Hospital where they both gave birth. Our thoughts are with Dave who has been strong throughout the period of Jacky's illness. Dave has requested that anyone intending to be at the funeral leave details with me. My telephone No. is 07768410218.
