    Mine is currently the 'cap badge' of my late fathers Regiment, the 24th Lancers. After spending too much of my life not asking questions - which he probably wouldn't have answered anyway - I asked questions back in the 1990s and ended up as Honorary Secretary of the 24th Lancers Old Comrades Association where I got to meet lots of his old friends, most sadly now departed this World. Hopefully they are now swapping notes in their Tankies Valhalla.

    I see to my amazement that I don't seem to have contributed to this thread......well, still here, and still using 'Guy Gibson' ( although it is, of course, a 'still' from The Dam Busters with Richard Todd impersonating Gibson ) .

    After all these years, Gibson remains to me a fascinating flawed hero of WWII.....

    My mum would agree with your comments about Gibson being a flawed hero. She actually knew him and used to take his dog for walks.
