Richard Blake, North West Frontier Force Rifles

When my mother went to India as a VAD Nurse in 1945, she was allocated a young officer as an escort: Richard Blake, of the North West Frontier Force Rifles, who was also known as Dick. He served either in the 13th Frontier Force Rifles, or the 4th Battalion (Wilde’s) Frontier Force Rifles. His badge is a single star with the acronym IMA, which stands for Indian Military Academy. I have several photos of Richard and I would love to find any descendants so I can share the images and also my mother’s story.
