Wynne, who recounted his and Smoky’s wartime story in his own book entitled Yorkie Doodle Dandy; A Memoir, which served as a reference for and is quoted in this book. William A. Wynne sadly passed away in 2021, but he is survived by his loved ones who are determined to keep the memory of his and Smoky’s wartime story alive and to cherish its legacy.
About SAS Bravo Three Zero
T here were three patrols that fateful January 1991 morning: Bravo One Zero, Bravo Two Zero and Bravo Three Zero. It was the opening hours of the Gulf War and the SAS were flown deep behind enemy lines to hunt down Saddam's Scud missiles, the use of which threatened a Third World War.
The men of Bravo One Zero stepped off the chopper, took one look at the flat desert devoid of any cover and decided no way were they deploying into all of that. But Andy NcNab's famed Bravo Two Zero patrol did deploy, with fatal results - all bar one being captured or killed.
And then there was Bravo Three Zero. These men were different.
