I've just started to do some research into my Grandfather's war time service, I know he served with the 59th HAA Regt, 265 Battery. His name was Albert George Littleton, Bombardier, service No 1435081. From what I can work out his Regt disembarked in Algiers 21st Dec 42 Ship P55. He was in Bone (Now Annaba) 24 Dec 42 as 167 and 265 batteries proceeded for detachment to main AA defense positions in the Bone area. Oct 2nd 1943 265 Battery is mentioned as being in Bizerta area and moving to Ferryville. It appears he then left for Naples around either the 21st Oct 43 or 13th Nov 1943 and I have a couple of photos of him in Rome 1944. He was mentioned in desptaches in the Gazette 11/11/43 but the remaining of his 2 children have fussy memories as to what this was for. I do have info that he was recommended by AFHQ ( am I correct in assuming this stands for Allied Force HQ?) The file Number is 68/GEN/7694 (again, not sure if this means anything) If anyone can help me with any general information on any of the above that would be fantastic.
