My father (now 94) served in the Western Desert with James. I have information which may be of interest.

My late father, James Oliver Hall, worked on this project - building the model of the caves in plaster of Paris. I have some old photographs of the work in progress, if you are interested. I am currently working on a book on him and his artistic achievements.
