Thank you all so much regarding best wishes for Ray. I am now with him willing him on with messages of support from you guys. Unfortunately he will just slip away. Met Sid James at hospital telling our sisters stories about Ray. As one sister said for the time he was here he certainly lifted the gloom. Thank you Sid. Will give you all a Sitrep as we go along. Thank you my AB,s. Best wishes to you all.

Larry, very sorry to hear about Ray. We did P company together and his sense of humour certainly certainly helped during that testing period. Years later I managed to get him a copy of our course photograph.

Graham Alcock | ggalcock~AT~btinternet~DOT~com
My father was RSM John Alcock of the Third Battalion the Parachute Regiment. He is the man putting on his beret in the famous Suez drop photo which shows Colonel Crook walking off towards the control Tower. This claim is disputed by other sons however. But dad identified himself as this man to me in the 1980s so I am quite certain about this.I even have a chemical based sets of photos from 1956 - copies I believe that were made from a collection made by a man called Major Norman. Dad had been 2 SAS in 1944.Something at Suez affected my fathers personality to the detriment. I think he suffered from battle stress after that action. I know he saw some terrible things.
