Default Colonel David Strangeways DWR

Has anyone got a photograph of Maj/Lt Col/Col David Strangeways DWR from the WW2 period. He was most well known for his work in the field of Deception - initially in the Middle East in A Force and from 1944 in UK and NWE as Comd R Force, 21 Army Group.
I'm trying to establish whether or not a DWR Maj - a student on an Air Photo Interpretation course in Farnborough - is in fact David Strangeways. The course photo is not named.
