Wilk34,

Hello and welcome to the forum.

The above list is that of the whole Regimental soldiers who were killed.

I suppose the odds are that there may be one or more surviving, but tracing them will not be easy.
I for one have no idea where to start apart from placing a request in the Royal British legion Magazine or military forums such as this.

Regards
Tom

At the annual Service of Remembrance in Hexham, Northumberland, last month, a wreath was laid of behalf of the 3rd Reconnaissance Regiment Old Comrades Association. Must still have some members to pay for the wreath and keep the memories alive of those listed above.

My great uncle was Harold J. Humphries so I just wondered if anyone knew how he passed and what type of work they did
Could any of you tell me what work they did?

Wilk34, This is a page from the War Diary covering the date your Great Uncle died. The War Diary is available from this link

http://www.ww2talk.c...ar-diaries.html

Do you have a photo of his headstone, if not I can supply one.
Do you have any photos of your Great Uncle that you can share?

Cheers

Your Great uncle is mentioned in the Roll Of Honour in 'The History Of the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers in the Second World War' (CN Barclay). On pages 154 and 155 it mentions that at "midnight 6/7th August both squadrons [B and C] were definitely held up and the enemy still in possession of the feature [high ground near Vire]. Lieut. DG Snelling was later awarded the Military Cross for the handling of his armoured car troop (C sqn.) in this engagement. ... Desultory fighting continued for the next few days..."

They did some liaison work with the US 102nd Mechanised Cavalry Group during this period.

Best,

Steve.

Hello Bill,
First, welcome to the forum.

By chance I was at The National Archives a couple of weeks ago and copied 3 Recce’s missing personnel file which mentions your father-in-law.

About 1500hrs on 3rd March 1945 near Kapellen Tpr M Bateson was captured after his vehicle was hit. The other members of the crew, L/Sgt R Byrne and Tpr R Inman were killed. Bateson then returned to his unit with a white flag and a German soldier. The German asked the British to remove two wounded British men on condition that Bateson returned as a prisoner. This duly happened.

See attached PDF from WO 361/554 (North West Europe: 3rd Reconnaissance Regiment, Royal Armoured Corps; missing personnel. 1944 Jul 01 - 1945 Apr 30.). This give more details. Doesn't say who the wounded men were or what happened to them.


What became of your father-in-law?



Regards,
Richard




PS. Thanks Andrea for the Missing Personnel spreadsheet list. Wouldn’t have found this file otherwise.

PPS. Yes, one day I'll get the rest of the file put on the forum!

Hi Roger, I think that the clerk has it wrong as I have Mulvey, T listed in This Band of Brothers (ROH), The Reconnaissance Journal - Memorial Number - Summer 1950, British 3rd Division Casualty Figures and R.O.H. 1944-45 and of course CWGC. My father was in 56 Recce and in his case a clerk listed him as Mitchell J not T as it should have been but the army No was correct.

Hello Rene,

 

 

From 3 Recce Regt’s War Diary for 21 Sept 1944:

 

0830.  A and C Sqns begin recce to EAST towards WEERT and canal line BOIS LE DUC between NEDERWEERT and ZOMEREN . 

Contact made with small parties of enemy inf armed with small arms and bazookas.

Liaison with 11 Armd Div.

RHQ moves to MAARHEEZE.

Last light:  A Sqn area DORPLEIN; B Sqn area DE HUTTEN;

C Sqn just NORTH of WEERT on main road to EINDHOVEN.

 

Also, from the Regiment’s Missing Personnel file, there is a report for 21 September 1944.  Although it does not refer to Tpr Williams it gives an idea of what the Regiment were doing that day.
