Annotated copy of ‘Long Range Desert Group’


So I have been given a signed and annotated copy of ‘Long Range Desert Group’ by Bill Kennedy Shaw. I’m trying to work out who wrote the annotations, as the script is different from the author’s signature. Some were written in pencil and have been inked-in afterwards. The book used to be owned by the late Colonel Alan Stott of the RAMC, and he collected a whole pile of newspaper clippings in the rear of the book, some relevant to the LRDG and some more relevant to Col Stott himself. The above is an example of the annotations – who is LBS I wonder? I’m in touch by email with Meg Kennedy Shaw, Bill’s daughter, and she is helping me try and identify the annotator.
