There’s someone searching for Pat Montague-Bates on this blog.  If you leave a comment below with any information that might help, I’ll have a look through what I’ve opened already and keep an eye out for him in future.  I know he was listed as being at Brindisi.  Have you checked the start of the photo album for pictures?

And someone else reading might know of him.

      I’m afraid there’s no indication in the photo album giving names of the people in the photos. But if you think you know which he is in (Brindisi probably), let me know and I’ll try and get a better scan of any pictures you want.
