My father Dr Patrick Aloysius O'Brien was at school with Captain Defence at St Aloysius' College, Glasgow. For over 60 years I have been intrigued by the photograph and brief summary of the wartime exploits of this handsome, distinguished and clearly very brave man which appeared in my father's copy of "Old Aloysians in the World War" which is now in my possession. Only in recent years with the help of "Google" have I been able to learn more about him but no doubt there is a great deal more to his story than what is publicly available. My sincere condolences to his family.

Re : Eileen Dwyer.
Hi Hilary

You left a message for Eileen. I am sorry to tell you, my friend Eileen, died in August last year.

Yours truly

Paul Monaghan.

Dear Hilary, thank you for answering my message. And for writing another memorial note for Marcel. You mention that you learned about Marcel through a TV program. Do you remember what this program was called?
My personal email is if you would like to reply to me personally.

Hi Hilary.

I've just very recently discovered this website and was overwhelmed by the information about Marcel Defence and his connection with SOE during WW2.
I am also curious to know who you are? Your message to him is very touching. Did you ever know him?

Marcel's sister,
