Lance-Sergeant William Irving (second from the right, middle row). The photograph appears to have been taken in the aftermath of an investiture by Field Marshal Montgomery (sitting in the centre of the middle row), during the Normandy campaign, possibly 16th July 1944. Major-General Gale sits to the left of Montgomery. Sergeant Willard Parker Minard MM (1st Canadian Parachute Battalion) is second from the left on the front row. Copyright: Matthew Catlow.
