From the Canadian Veterans Affairs site


Operation Tideway Green, which worked with the M.P.A.J.A., was led by one of S.O.E.'s "old boys", Joseph Henri Adélard Benoit. Benoit had already completed sabotage missions in France and undergone jungle training in Ceylon and Burma.

This, the only all-Canadian team of Force 136, parachuted into Malaya on August 5, 1945. Other team members were John Elmore Hanna, Ernie Louie and Roger Caza. Hanna had spent much of his childhood in northern China and could speak Mandarin fluently. He immigrated to Canada in 1931 and joined the army 10 years later. In September 1944, at 29-year-of-age, Hanna volunteered to use his knowledge of Chinese on special duty in Asia. Seven months of training in New Delhi followed.

Ernie Louie was a Chinese-Canadian who spoke fluent Cantonese and acted as interpreter for the team. The fourth team member was Roger Caza, a former journalist from Ottawa, who like Benoit, was also an S.O.E. veteran, having served as a wireless operator in France. He also trained at S.O.E.'s Eastern Warfare School and at the jungle training school in Sri Lanka and had been in Malaya since March of that year.

The team spent six days, three in torrential rain, trekking through 120 kilometres of jungle to northern Johore. Here they were to gather information about Japanese movements and to instruct and supply local guerrillas. Since the Japanese had surrendered by the time they reached their destination, the team's mission shifted to assisting Allied prisoners of war, many of whom were suffering from disease and malnutrition after three and a half years in captivity. With the assistance of an Australian corporal and captain, Benoit's team located 900 near starving and sick POWs and organized food and medical drops for them as well as initiating arrangements to get them home.

The members of Tideway Green stayed on in Malaya, involved in police work and civil administration, until mid-November when they returned to Canada.

History of the lands and their owners in Galloway by P.H. McKerlie

We find that he was succeeded by his son Robert, who on the 29th July 1630 was infeft in the lands of Little Corsock, Marnhowle, Blakmark, and Arvie. We have been inclined to think that the property was divided under the designation of Meikle and Little Corsock; that the first was owned by the Lindsays, and the latter by the Neilsons. This opinion we think is confirmed by the fact that on the 15th March 1664, James Lindsay, heir (pro avi) of James Lindsay of Forgirth, was infeft in the land of Meikle Corsock, Auchinvey, and Ryis.

In the valuation roll of 1642, Robert Neilson possessed also Auchenvey, Mairnhowl, and Cruchie. At the same period James Neilson owned Arvie and Loch, with Low Arvie; and Robert Glendonwyne of Parton, and his son James, Lower Armannoch. Robert Neilson married , daughter of William Maclellan of Barscobe, parish of Balmaclellan. He had issue- John. 
Neilson, Robert (I689)
