I would really appreciate hearing from anyone, who may remember my late father Capt JPR Philip Hattrell of 3 Para attached from the Suffolk Regt, who was killed in Haifa March 1947.

My Uncle (Pte. Charles Carter) was a member of 3 Para in Palestine and I think that he may have worked cloely with your father. Sadly Charlie died in a road accident in 1953.

While in Palestine he and an officer were trapped by a group of jews who stoned them. The officer was killed and Charlie survived with a fractured skull. I know little else but as far as I am aware Capt H was the only officer killed around the same time as Charlie was in theatre. It may have been coincidental with the execution of Dov Gruner.
