I would agree that he's not one of the "originals", but don't let that put you off. Remember this is a newspaper article written by a general news journalist who, while he's done a better job on military stuff than most, is not an expert on the army.

To most of the general public the original SAS is a unit who took part in WW2, and a founder of the regiment is also simply someone who served at about that time. They have no idea what L Detachment is and no understanding of what we call "originals".

There's nothing "wrong" with this collection when you look at it in this light. Nothing is contrived. Enjoy it for what it is, the man won an MC with the SAS for crying out loud.
