This site is dedicated to Able Seaman Peter Tester Main, 63rd Royal Naval Division. Also to his friend “Willy,” who rescued his badly wounded pal, my grandfather, from no-man’s land in Gallipoli in 1915.  It is also in memory of Sir Peter Main ERD who served with the RAMC. In 1956 he was the Medical Officer of a Field Ambulance, attached to Commando Brigade,  in Suez.
