NORTHERN, Samuel Bernard
Mne Northern was killed during operations at Dieppe.
The CWGC shows his unit as HMS Locust. This was the name of the ship that carried about 200 Royal Marine Commandos on the raid at Dieppe.
It should be noted 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 PO/X 101038 Mne Samuel B. 'Ginger' Northern, is named as a member of the unit.
This Unit was later redesignated as 30 Assault Unit.
