Mystery Badges of SAS Sgt. Ken Sturmey


Recommended Posts

Thanks Harvey and especially Gilles for the links. Unfortunately the para badge has no number on it but your link to the Vengeance site Gilles explains the reason Ken had this badge as he was dropped with the 1st SAS into the Morvan district of France in 1944 as part of Operation Houndsworth and fought besides the Maquis Bernard destroying transport links the Germans were using in the area. I believe he attended the 45th anniversary ceremony of the Maquis in Oroux en Morvan in 1989.

Again thanks to everyone for their help.
