The Assessment of Military Conduct & Character is particularly noteworthy:

Military Conduct: Exemplary.

Testimonial: 'Throughout his service Sgt McNally has earned the highest praise from his superiors. He is completely honest and trustworthy with a highly developed sense of duty. he has a pleasant quite sensitivity and gets on well with his superiors and subordinates. He has always put his duty before his personal affairs and cannot be too highly recommended for a position where integrity and hard work are required.'

Additional notes: The Certificate of Service Book runs from 1950-1966, however, his formal pension certifcate states 22 years service, which possibly indicates McNally was conscripted into the army during WW2, and then re-enlisted 1949/1950.

The Kings Own Royal Regiment Museum holds a photograph of McNally serving with the 1st Battalion. The photo taken in Egypt on April 23 [St Georges Day] 1959.  The photograph date and location, ties-in/reaffirms his service records confirming 'in East Africa.'

A particularly interesting possible SAS-related group to an 'Exemplary' military personality, presenting an opportunity for further research.
