SOE (Special Operations Executive) Operation Boatswain 18 May 1941 #general
Operation Boatswain Casualties
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission have now finally officially
added the names of the parents of these men and their addresses - so
for most it is clear they are >from Israel (then Palestine under
British Mandate) - who died on the SOE Operation Botswain 18th May
1941, to the web site <cwgc.org>, and soon to the Memorial at
Brookwood in Surrey <http://tinyurl.com/n9myqox>. This commemorates
3,500 men and women of the forces of the British Commonwealth "to whom
the fortunes of war denied a known and honoured grave"
Some names are spelt differently in transliteration >from Hebrew names
so these are listed below for your reference. It has taken several
years to get to this point but now it is done. Surnames first. They have been
given the rank of Volunteer. It is obvious that some of these names
have the forenames and surnames reversed.
