A very good find, John.  I enjoyed reading this! To think that Deal had 3 cinemas once!

Re the picture of the 540th Fire Command Post the soldier front left seated is
99485 Gnr (OFC) Owen T.M. 540 Coast Regiment RA.

Have this information from his daughter who sent the National Trust a picture of him and another view of the same shot and was able to
name him.
