COLONEL H S GILLIES MC KOSB



From www.specialoperations.com
The Reserve Reconnaissance Unit had been originally known as Intelligence School No.9 (d) and was descended from the MI9 escape and evasion organisation. MI9's job had been to insert small behind enemy lines to aid the return to safety of Allied evaders, whether they be downed airmen or escaped prisoners of war. In 1959 the RRU became 23 SAS, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel H. S. Gillies.
