ALEXANDER, John Moir
Mne Alexander was killed during operations at Dieppe.
The CWGC shows his unit as 40RM Commando which is technically correct at the time of the raid. However it should be pointed out that we have an Image of a Signals Intelligence Unit formed for the raid at Dieppe which operated covertly on on this raid as a platoon of 40RM Commando. On that image Mne Alexander is named as a member of the unit.
This Unit was later redesignated as 30 Assault Unit.
