The Brigade was lucky to have with it Guy Byam of the BBC, Leonard Mosely of Allied Newspapers who came by Parachute, Chester Wilmot of the BBC, and David Woodward of the Manchester Guardian who travelled by glider. These four correspondents were most generous in the recognition they gave to the work of the Brigade through their despatches.
