No.4 Cdo. Reunion of men who attended a training course at Capel Curig
The photo is annotated "No.2 Syndicate CSMWTC Capel Curig 1942" and is likely to refer to training that Ernie and the others were on. The men are all from No.4 Commando and would have been on the training. Jimmy Dunning later became Adjutant of the CMWTC at St Ives. This 4 Commando reunion was in the Porchester Hall circa 1951/2. My thanks to Jimmy Dunning for clarifying the details above and adding the names below.
Front row l-r: 1. n/k ; 2. Major. R.P. Menday MC - he was 2nd i/c 4 Cdo at Normandy; 3. Captain David Style MC; 4. Major Jimmy Dunning (4 Cdo. and later Adjutant of the CMWTC at St Ives); 5. Lieut. Jim Burke (CBTC and 4 Cdo); 6. L/Cpl. Ted Slack; 7. n/k ; 8. Sgt. John Skerry;
