WWII British Para, Captain James Cleminson KBE MC


Cleminson was also at Arnhem and was famously holed up with Major General Roy Urquhart in an attic, when the Germans surrounded the house they were stranded in. Urquhart apparently took exception to Cleminson’s mustache which he called “damn silly” and this scene is repeated in the film “A Bridge Too Far”. Cleminson was also captured at Arnhem and held prisoner until 1945 where he was released by American forces. He returned to work at his father’s firm after the war and died in 2010.
