Tingaling and Ding Dong
Royal Berkshire Regiment
Lance Sergeant Roy Bellringer served with 1 troop and took part in the raid at St Nazaire. He was on board ML 446 and was evacuated back to the UK. In July 1942 he was part of the No 2 Commando Boxing Team. We have numerous photos in the gallery of him both before and after St Nazaire, and in an image of the boxing team.
He then left No 2 Commando to become an NCO Instructor at the Commando Depot, Achnacarry. He was part of the PT Team alongside CSMI Frickleton and Sgt Bissell.*
Post war Roy Bellringer ran the Pengwern Arms in Llan Ffestiniog, for a fair many years in the late 60s early 70s, and then the Rectory at Maentwrog for a short time.
