Patrol member Paddy O’Mara was photographed for “The Last Ditch”, by David Lampe. Lampe used Colchester library for much of his background research and travelling by train from Brightlingsea would have passed Paddy’s post war newspaper pitch outside Colchester station. It isn’t clear that Paddy spoke to Lampe, who obviously recognised his enamel Aux Units badge, worn in his beret. He doesn’t feature in the text or extensive name by name credits and possibly refused to talk to Lampe about his wartime experiences!
