Private Durston, of the 9th Battalion's "A" Company, with a wounded German POW near the Ecarde crossroads, near the Chateau d'Amfreville. Just above Durston's left wrist there is a skull and crossbones on his smock. This indicates that he was amongst those men of "A" Company who carried out the glider assault on the Merville Battery. Every man in G-B Force had a luminous skull and crossbones painted about them, so that once they had landed in the battery they could be distinguished from the enemy. Copyright: IWM FLM3021.
