I am now in touch with Mac, he lives in Spain, I understand he attended a couple of SCLI reunions before going missing, he has sent a few pictures and will next be in UK during July, when we hope to meet.

This photo was taken in Tobruk in 1960/61. The General was asking me the usual questions: Do you like it here? No. Been here long? Cannot remember.
Next to me is Bomber Brown. Clobber Cleeves on the end and the bugler on the extreme end.is Roy Collings.
