Lieutenant-Colonel Paddy Mayne

EDM number 248 in 2004-05, proposed by Eric Martlew on 01/12/2004.

That this House recognises the courage displayed by Lieutenant-Colonel Paddy Mayne from Newtownards, at Oldenburg on 9th April 1945; notes that eyewitness accounts describe Mayne's outstanding bravery while rescuing a squadron of allied soldiers behind enemy lines from the midst of a German attack; welcomes the unearthing of documents at the National Archives in Kew proving his original citation for a Victoria Cross; commends the ongoing efforts of the Blair Mayne Association; and supports this Second World War hero, who helped found what later came to be known as the SAS, being awarded the Victoria Cross posthumously.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
