Merville Barracks - Keeping the Memory Alive

Wow. Got an order in work going to a Para captain at 'Merville Barracks' - named after the DDay gun battery where my uncle, private Daniel 'Roddy' Hurley, died (DDay plus 1). The Paras disabled the battery (see my other posts for further details on Roddy & the battle there). 

What a small world. Hope the order gets there ok. Wouldn't like to deal with an angry Para captain. ;)
