Other information

Kenneth “Tubby” Weymouth was a milkman at David Greig Ltd. Frederick Hayter was a Boy Scout leader prior to war and Tubby Weymouth was a member of his troop.

He was discharged to His Majesties Forces 14th April 1943. His first Army call up was cancelled due to his Auxiliary Unit role. He had been sent to Bodmin but returned after a week, telling people he was unfit for service. He was later called up again and went to Northamptonshire for two months training. He then served in the Coldstream Guards for 10 months. He received a letter asking him to join the SAS. He didn't know what the SAS was but agreed as he hated the Coldstream "bullshit". When his Coldstream Officer asked him what was going on he could, honestly, say he didn't know. He completed his SAS training in Scotland and went into 1 SAS. He was dropped behind lines in France at Auxerre with armed jeeps. He is mentioned in an account of the action "These Men Are Dangerous" by Derrick Harrison. He met up with American forces and went into Germany.

After the German surrender he went on to Norway, picking up Germans from outlying islands. He was transferred to the Parachute Regiment and ended his service in Palestine.

He married Lenorah Moore in October 1953.
