What a fantastic post. The diary is particularly fascinating, which I shall read in full later. My Grandfather was in the 113th and I thought I would see if I could find out exactly when and where he was especially with D-Day very much in the news. I always remembering him saying they were frustrated not to be in the invasion action earlier - but they made up for it later. He was a commercial signwriter before/after the war and upon the liberation of Belsen he produced all the signs to inform the world of the camp via the cine films made.
