Major Harry George McQuinn 

Major McQuinn served with the TJFF, becoming the Officer Commanding Guards Squadron (the Mobile Guards Squadron), based at Sarafand, Palestine.  Before the war he was attached to the British Military Mission working with the Egyptian Army.  On the outbreak of war he became a bomb disposal instructor with the Royal Engineers Bomb Disposal (REBD).  He was subsequently commissioned into the King's Dragoon Guards and later seconded to the TJFF on account of his fluency in Arabic.

The photos here are of Major McQuinn's wedding at Jaffa in September 1947.  I am indebted to the Major's son, Mac McQuinn, for providing the photos and details of Major McQuinn's career.
