The only serviceman to have been decorated by both sides in an armed conflict.
I liked both his description of the OBE (Other B*gg*rs' Efforts) and that the only person he could
ask about wearing his, "Enemy," decoration (Officer of the Orden de Mayo) told him to wear it on all appropriate occasions.
I loved one of his little anecdotes, though;
The British were planning a major offensive, so he asked for helicopters to transfer his existing patients to the Canberra
to create space for casualties. After being told that all the helicopters were busy, he was astounded to find a stream of them turning up. He couldn't stop laughing when he heard the explanation.
It seemed that a chef on the Canberra
was getting a little stir-crazy, so to, "Do his bit," every time a helicopter landed on board, he'd send up tea and bacon rolls for the crew. The helicopter crews were doing a couple of supply runs, dropping in at Atlas Bay, then nipping of for their tea and bacon rolls.
