Operation Mincemeat, Dasher, Major William Martins Headstone
I am sitting here with Isobel Mackay, my wife's aunt and the daughter of Mr John (Jack) Melville
- The MAN THAT NEVER WAS
Most compelling reading but I think there is a mis type on the paragraph on Major William Martins Headstone - Died 24 april 1945
surely you mean 1943 ??
If you want any more info or copies of some memorial service pictures from Cyprus in october last year - please e mail me here and I will pass on to her.
I never in my wildest dreams thought that my story about Dasher, her demise, and the really incredible deception that was played out using the body of Isobel Mackay's father, would be read by those close to Jack Melville.
Alan, I would be grateful if we could get some pictures of the Cyprus Memorial service, they would really add to this compelling story.
Please pass on my best regards to Isobel, it must be a relief for her to at last know the truth about her late Father, and make her very proud of the part he played after his death, in saving so many Allied servicemen's lives.
Again, my thanks in writing to me, it is one of the joys of the Internet for me, when I am able to connect with people across the world and it happens through something I have written about that is up on AHOY.
