London, England,

- This is a very comprehensive site, and I hope it stimulates discussion about PPA.
I've spent a great deal of time looking into PPA myself, and I'm particularly interested in assessing its legacy as a military unit. Of those members of PPA I've had the honour to talk to or to correspond with, I can say that they really are a remarkable group of men, generous with their time and considerate when addressing my lengthy interrogations!
There's a lot in this site, and I hope it will lead people to discover the many other fascinating details of this unit's history.
PPA has its detractors, and I am content to put this down, to some extent, to unit rivalry. What can't be disputed is the courage of the men who served with PPA. To my mind that is not in question.
