They were called upon to cross many rivers, often opposed by a determined enemy, culminating in the Argenta Gap in the huge waterlogged valley of the River Po.
Veterans' stories illustrate the horrendous nature of the East Surrey's task, whether in set piece formation battles or patrol actions. His experiences enabled this fine officer to revolutionise SAS training and tactics in the s and s in Malaya and Arabia, and he is credited with revitalising the SAS when it was in grave danger of being disbanded.
