This is a question that appeared in the Radio Times back in June at the time of the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
As far as I am aware, it has never been answered, so here it is.
Who is the soldier in the front of this picture? What we do know is that it is a still from movie footage of Number 4 Commando, 1st Special Service Brigade, approaching Queen Red Sector, Sword Beach on the 6th June 1944.
Ian Carter, Archivist, Imperial war Museum, writing in the RT.
"Unfortunately the identity of the man at the front isn't known. Over the years he has been claimed by quite a few people who believe they recognise a relative"
Can R H solve this?
