    Hi all

    I have just joined this forum. My grandfather died almost 24 years ago, he never really spoke too much about his war time service. however, I do know he was in the 113th LAA and I know most of the route he took from D-Day by reading around general histories and some personal accounts. His name is Arthur Messer Lance Bombardier 1st Class No 1658027. Has anyone come across his name and if so which battery did he serve in? Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks

    I have been reading the posts on here about the 113th LAA Regiment with interest, my stepfather was Major PE Murrell who was c/o of 369 battery and was at Belsen in command of one the camps. I have 369 Battery photo albums and various artifacts from the camp which I inherited after he passed away.

    Gosh - I have just read this, and a couple of the previous ones that throw up new names.
    Bergen Belsen Concentration Camp – A NEW ONLINE ARCHIVE has progressed really well and now has a number of 113th names in addition to some names from some of the other early units that were at Belsen. I'll send you a PM Neil as I'd love to see what you have (my Grandfather was 369 and spoke very highly of Major Murrell when at the time most seniors weren't seen in the best lights!)
