Someone thinks that he is General Major Frederick Morgan...
But I don't think so,because he doesn't look like Frederick Morgan...
Who is he?
Hi,
It is Sir John Fullerton Evetts with Montgomery.
It takes me more than 8 years to ID the unknown general.
Thank everyone who have helped me.

The officer with Paget is Lt-gen Arthur Francis Smith, GOC London District and commanding Brigade of Guards. The shoulder patch is that of London District.

Who might this British Lt General be? He's inspecting Luftwaffe troops, accompanied by Generalleutnant von Reichenau, probably c. 1935-37.

Can anyone ID the Indian Army officers on the pic? I was taken in Kotabharu airfield, Malaya.

Would it be Maj Gen Key, Lt Gen Heath, Maj Gen Batstow?
