Post by pittaway » 03 Nov 2006 22:19

Hello, I have done a book called LRDG RHODESIA

am busy with the 2nd edition.
I am looking for German photos to include of the 'Battle of Leros"
please anyone have any scans, even just one?
our book is a labour of love, its outstanding, about the S Patrol,LRDG at Clidi Hgts, Leros.
any photos from the battle will be welcomed.

The books look interesting, I hope you find original photos to include.

I can't help with photos but I should like to recommend a book I've just finished reading:
'Churchill's Folly' Leros and the Aegean by Anthony Rogers ISBN 0-304-36151-8 published in 2003.
I suppose you have read it but just incase you haven't I've put it here. There are many refs to LRDG, SBS and SAS(one only). There is also a good set of photos, and the Introduction has good info and names.
Hope this helps.
