Update 16/10/11 by Pete R. Des Rochford No.2 Cdo. provided some notes for this photo to Paul Bell. Des wrote " Lake Commachio April 1945. Self and Scouse Hale 2 Cdo. Heating up some meat and vegetable in a mess tin on a tommy cooker during a rest in the battle. My assault jacket with water bottle in one of the pockets is in front of me. I had no idea it was being taken by a roaming cameraman Zwet who was the medical officers bodyguard" .
Zwet will be Zvi Zvet who was with 2 Cdo as an interpreter and who was seriously injured shortly after this. There are pictures of Zvi in our gallery at post war reunions.
