  1. My dad is Capt. F.H. Medcalf (4th row). One of his best friends, during and after the war, was Jack Secord!
    My dad wrote a diary of his time in England pre June 6/44, being in charge of a landing on June 10/44 and the rest
    of his time with QOR until the end of the war. Any interest in having a copy?


  2. I am trying to find out more about my father’s military life. He is seated in the 1st row, 2nd from the right – Major J P Secord. Are you able to provide me with any resources where I might find such info? Thank you.
