    Yes it's a P party not CDT
    If I had served God half as well as I have served the King, he would not have given me over to die in such a place as this

    Yep, always learning new things. The P Parties were made up of RN and Royal Marine Engineers personel and the divers were either naval or RME. They spent a lot of time in the French , Belgian and Dutch ports disposing of mines, UXB's and booby traps. Unsung heroes, here is a list of the medals awarded to them
