About this item
For sale is a Post WW2 15 Para: 1947-1993 By Alasdair Hutton Publication, that was published in 1997.Inside the front cover this book states: “It has been a fascinating task to dig deeper into the background of this remarkable Battalion. The brief scattering of memories and photographs recorded here touches on only a few of the personalities who passed through its ranks and some of the activities which made the Battalion great over nearly half a century. There are many names and many activities and many individual memories missing but this booklet gathers together for the first time some of the material which has escaped the destruction of the years and should stir memories of many more people and happenings unrecorded. I have been particularly helped by former Commanding Officers Joe Cousland, Bob Stewart, Lachie Robertson, the late Joe Starling, Norrie Giles, Jim Burke, Edward Gardener, Pat Wood, Chris Keeble and Mike Argue. Bill Fisher, the former Intelligence Section photographer has been invaluable with his stock of photographs and his research into newspaper archives. Within the 15 Para family, Alan Birkbeck, Vic Cowie, Alex Dunbar, Arthur Grant, Davie Howie, Jimmy McCarthy, Shug McGarvey, James Macrae, Wallace McKie, Bobby Moore, Alan Rutherford, Tom Tosh, Nigel Turnbull and Sydney Winship were all very helpful with material and recollections. Outside the Battalion thanks are due to Pixie Campbell MBE from the Edinburgh Military Tattoo Office, Brian Swinburne for the picture of the 1990 Tattoo finale, David McVittie and Grace Brown in Langholm, John Davidson the Scottish Rugby Union's honorary historian, the Scottish Sports Council, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, D.C. Thomson, The Herald, The Record and The Scotsman. The PR Centre in Edinburgh were immensely helpful with their work on the design of the booklet and printer Walter Graham transformed the raw material into its finished state. My very grateful thanks are due to them all. Without their contributions this would not have been possible. All mistakes are mine. All profits from the sale of this history will go to the Tullochan Trust formed as a memorial to Alastair Pearson. Alasdair Hutton, 1997” This is good condition as will be dispatched the next working day. This will be sent via Royal Mail 1st class signed for and dispatched within two working days.
