...but when the book was published in 1996, the incident was not recorded. The author Oliver Lindsay said he had submitted the proofs to the defence ministry but they had redacted the incident.
Stourton’s son said he was “bitterly disappointed”.

“It would have been a vindication of his actions, and it was a crushing blow when he found out it had been redacted. I believe he was ostracised, or something close to it, which is not merely hurtful but dangerous. If good men stand idly by, we are all in terrible trouble.”

The incident is now included in a new book Unsung Heroes, by Algy Cluff.
Eykyn said he was also relieved that the truth was being uncovered.

“Even after all this time, it’s important the record is set straight,” he said.
