Private Benjamin Price, 1st Bn, North Staffs, is my wifes grandfather. He survived the war but unfortunately died in a plane crash just outside Marseilles on Jan 15th 1946. We have quite a bit of information about the crash and we are going to visit Marseiles in January 2016 to mark the 70th Anniversary. We are taking our 76 year old father, who was a babe in arms when his dad left to go to war, never to return. We have never visited his grave, which is in Mazargues War Cemetry, Marseilles. Benjamin was on Dakota KN557 which left Catania Airfield, Sicily on an air trooping flight to Bordeaux We think Benjamin was in India but we are not sure We don’t know what he did in the army There is little information about the North Staffs late 1945 We believe he was returning home from India, via Palestine when the plane crashed We don’t know why he was on this plane, after all he was just a Private Newspaper articles state there was POW's on the plane but we dont believe he was a POW We do have lots of information and pictures on the crash and Benjamins service records, which are quite difficult to read. Lots of gaps to fill in, can anyone help.
