Cpt. Bob Montgomery MC

To make doubly certain that the Normandie Dock could not be put back into use in the short term, the attacking force contained numerous Demolition Teams whose job it was to destroy a lengthy list of vital dockyard facilities.

In the case of the teams carried by Campbeltown, their success was the immediate responsibilty of Sapper Captain Bob Montgomery, one of two Engineers attached to 2 Commando who, far in advance of the raid, had chosen this very port as the subject of a dockyard demolition exercise.

With his area successfully cleared Bob rejoined Colonel Newman's HQ party and remained with them during the breakout across Bridge 'D'. All were later captured having taken refuge in a cellar which happened to be right across the street from German HQ.
