Andy Maines and Idris Jones (No.1 Cdo)
This is a great photo of Andy Maines, son of Hugh Maines (No.1 Cdo) with Idris Jones (No.1 Cdo). The photo is courtesy of Andy who adds the following "Just thought that I would share a moving experience that I had during my visit with Idris Jones at his home recently. I had asked Idris on a previous visit if he could dig out his Green Beret so that I could have a look at it, as I did not have my father's and had never actually seen an original. When I arrived for my visit Idris said that he wanted me to have his Beret, I was absolutely flabbergasted and of course deeply honoured and will cherish it for the rest of my life.".
