Colonel FAIRWEATHER was appointed CSO [Chief Signal Officer] to Special Force early in October 1943 when the Force was in its inception.
Since that date, he has spared no effort in order to achieve and maintain the complicated and efficient signals organisation which has worked successfully throughout operations.
Apart from his efficiency, his cheerfulness at all times and under all conditions has had a very powerful effect on maintaining a high morale amongst fellow officers.
