    Ah Tom,
    The Irishman that never was, but a Mick all the same. And cited in a speech of Churchill's:

    "When I think of these days I think also of other episodes and personalities. I do not forget Lieutenant-Commander Esmonde, V.C., D.S.O., Lance-Corporal Kenneally, V.C., Captain Fegen, V.C., and other Irish heroes that I could easily recite, and all bitterness by Britain for the Irish race dies in my heart. I can only pray that in years which I shall not see, the shame will be forgotten and the glories will endure, and that the peoples of the British Isles and of the British Commonwealth of Nations will walk together in mutual comprehension and forgiveness."

    John Patrick Kenneally - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    On 28 April 1943 at Dj. Arada, Tunisia, Lance-Corporal Kenneally charged alone down the bare forward slope straight into the main body of the enemy about to make an attack, firing his Bren gun from the hip; the enemy were so surprised that they broke up in disorder. The lance-corporal repeated his exploit on 30 April when, accompanied by a sergeant, he charged the enemy forming up for assault, inflicting many casualties. Even when wounded he refused to give up, but hopped from one fire position to another, carrying his gun in one hand and supporting himself on a comrade with the other.

    My father greatly admires this man who received an immediate DCM for the same action, and was later taken prisoner at Anzio ending up at Luckenwald:

    SGT DESMOND THOMAS LYNCH 1Bn

    Attack on Pt 212 & 214 April 27th - May 1st. The 1st Bn Irish Guards were right hand Bn in a Bde attack on April 27. No. 4 Coy, in which Sgt Lynch is a Pl Sgt, was leading with its objective Pt 212 & 214. The company came under very heavy fire at the start line and had considerable casualties inflicted on it. The company comd and 2 platoon comds were wounded or killed and the C.S.M. killed. Sgt. Lynch looked after his wounded Pl comd and then took charge of the company or what was left of it. When the advance continued he organised his coy and assaulted and gained his objective. Throughout the period of 28th - 30th when the force was being continually attacked he remained in command of No. 4 coy, except for a brief period when Captain Ismay was there. He was throughout an outstanding figure and his smart soldierly appearance under the most difficult circumstances created an impression amongst the men equalled only by his constant calm and bravery. No. 4 Coy held the West of the ridge forward towards Pt 214 and was continually under shell and mortar fire even when infantry attacks were not in progress. That the men never wavered under the fire was largely due to his example and in particular to his prompt action at the beginning. At 1100 hrs Wednesday 28th, enemy 88 mm guns opened up on the W of the ridge with a violence that was as unexpected as its effects were unpleasant. Casualties were caused and some of the men badly shaken. Sgt Lynch was at the time at Force H.Q. without hesitation he ran up through the heavy fire to his coy, held the men steady in their positions, moved a Bren gun forward, at great personal risk to meet the first infantry assault and gave the first fire order. The initial success gained by this Sgt in beating back the first German assault raised morale to the highest possible peak by proving conclusively by his own example that the fiercest fire could be endured and a determined attack broken by S.A. fire. This Sgt. consistently showed the greatest devotion to duty and even when half blinded by blast on Friday 30th, the continued to command and encourage his rapidly dwindling coy. I strongly recommend this Sgt for gallantry and good example. L.G. 8-7-43.

    General Alexander celebrates St. Patrick's Day with the Irish Guards at Cassino front in Italy during World War II.

    From IG History:
    EPILOGUE TO ITALY

    The 1st Battalion never fought again. Briefly, it was shipped home to England to re-form with new recruits, but soon found itself providing drafts and training men for the 3rd Battalion in Normandy. The intake of the Regiment was never enough to maintain three battalions on active service. Once the reservoir of trained men stored in Hobb’s Barracks from 1940 to 1943 was exhausted, one battalion had to be scrapped. The 1st Battalion stomached its pride, but it was not easy. The majority of officers and men were in time transferred to the 3rd Battalion. Major J.S.O. Haslewood, for instance, took over to Normandy a complete No. 4 Company which was first reconstituted in Italy.

    For four weeks after its evacuation from Anzio the Battalion rested in the villages of Santa Agata dei due Golfe and Massalubrense perched on the top of the Sorrento peninsula. While the Great Men discussed the future of the Brigade of Guards in Italy - amalgamation, integration, reduction, abolition or reinforcement - the Battalion collected its wounded from every hospital in Southern Italy and Sicily. The bad cases were assembled in Naples General Hospital; the men on the mend were posted Sorrento convalescent camp and then, since there was very little difference, to Santa Agata. Vesuvius erupted soon after the Battalion’s arrival, the grey lava dust turning the next day into night, blocking the roads and changing the green valleys into a landscape of the moon. “It‘s the end of the world - it would be just before Paddy’s Day.” Guardsman Graham’s pessimistic forecast shows the Battalion’s main interest at this time - St. Patrick’s Day. The shamrock was flown from Ireland, and there was no question about who was to present it - it had to be General Alexander, Cassino or no Cassino. The Regimental Band was recaptured from the other side of Italy, calves and pigs were bought at exorbitant prices, droves of Italians were hired to clean and press battle-dress, and the awards were approved in record time so that General Alexander could present them on parade.

    The 17th of March was a perfect day. General Alexander wrote to Colonel Scott that evening. “I do so heartily congratulate you on having such a splendid battalion. It was a real joy to me to be with them today, and I thought they looked just fin. Smart, proud of themselves - in fact, just what one wishes and expects Guardsmen to look like. It must have impressed all the on-lookers very much, like it did me. The Mick were always good (the best in the whole Brigade), but I really believe they were better today than ever they were or ever have been. I am only so sorry that I could not remain longer with you - go to High Mass and go round the company dinners, and then have lunch with you - but as you know I have this important and tricky battle of Cassino in full swing, and it must be won. This is my fifteenth St. Patrick‘s Day on parade with the Regiment and the fifth of active operations - not counting Constantinople and Gibraltar in 1922-4. Good luck to you all.”

    The Companies marched straight off parade to monumental dinners. Lunch in the Officers’ Mess was very late and very long, as was the evening in the Sergeants’ Mess. A week later the officers gave a Grand Ball in their Mess, the Pensione Garoffalo in Santa Agata; the prolific Neapolitan nobility provided the partners. This was the Battalion’s farewell partly.

    The 24th and the 201st Guards Brigades were amalgamated to form a new 24th. “24th Guards Brigade will receive 3rd Coldstream Guards complete and officers and men from 6th Guards and 2nd Scots Guards for their respective sister battalions. It will lose 1st Irish Guards.” The Battalion handed over all its equipment and packed for immediate embarkation with a skeleton 201st Brigade. At the very last moment Colonel Andrew Scott was snatched away to command the 28th Infantry Brigade. General Oliver Leese, who had just succeeded to the command of the Eighth Army, was not going to let so outstanding and experienced a soldier escape him. Both Colonel Andrew and the Battalion were stunned; he had brought them through so much, and now he was not to bring them home. He said goodbye to the companies on the evening before the Battalion embarked, leaving them in a loneliness that took all the zest out of the return to England. The following June Brigadier Scott achieved what he and all the Battalion had so dearly wished to have together - an audience with His Holiness the Pope. The special blessing he received was for the 1st Battalion - “the Irish Guards who have fought so gallantly in this country.”

    On the 11th April the Battalion sailed from Naples in the Capetown Castle. Of the 926 men who left Ayr in February, 1943, 326 landed in Liverpool on the 22nd April, 1944. On the beach-head the Battalion lost 32 officers and 714 men, killed wounded and missing. It left behind it in the graveyards outside Anzio 7 officers and 66 men. The bodies of some of the missing dead, such as the gallant Charles Bartlett, were found after the war; the others are still missing. “Quis separabit?” Wherever they lie, they are the 1st Battalion Irish Guards.

    From IG WW2 HISTORY, pgs 42-47

    The “Chobry” [Chrobry]

    On the morning of the 13th, the Polish Carpathian Brigade took over the Ankenes peninsula. From all round the fjord the scattered units of the 24th Guards Brigade converged on Skaanland. The orders were for the battalions to sail at four-hour intervals, the SCOTS GUARDS first in the two destroyers, then IRISH GUARDS in the Chobry, and finally the SOUTH WALES BORDERERS in H.M.S. Effingham. Three old river boats and one flat-bottomed barge put in to LILAND to transport the Battalion and three times the normal reserve of ammunition. The barge was dangerously overloaded. The steamers were unseaworthy and so top-heavy that men and kitbags had to be packed as ballast into the water-logged holds. Bodies are less perishable than bullets and bombs. All three steamers and the barge left LILAND together and arrived together alongside the Chobry at five o’clock in the afternoon. Part of Brigade H.Q., a battery of field gunners and some Fleet Air Arm officers were already on board, but no preparation had been made to load the Battalion. It was three o’clock in the morning before the last man and last box of ammunition were loaded.

    The SCOTS GUARDS sailed that morning. “We should be under way in four hours‘ time,” Captain BRIAN O’NEILL sat smoking ’like a piquet officer’ - one Balkan Sobranie after another - waiting for the operational and sailing orders. He waited all day. “The Chobry now remained at anchor within 400 yards of the Resolution, Cairo, and other warships, until 1830hrs., 14th May, thus endangering the troops to an unnecessary risk from air attack.” At six o’clock a Liaison Officer arrived at HARSTAD. “Chobry will sail immediately.” He brought no other orders - nothing except a vague apology for keeping the Battalion waiting. Captain O‘NEILL dispatched him with the cold professional rudeness of an Adjutant. “Five hours you’ve kept us waiting. During that time we’ve been bombed three times and it was pure good fortune that the ship was not hit.”

    “It is a hard thing to say,” wrote Captain GORDON-WATSON later, “but it is possible that this delay contributed to the loss of much valuable life when the ship was again bombed and hit.”

    At half-past six the CHOBRY steamed slowly down the fjord, followed by a German observation plane. When she reached the open sea, the CHOBRY was sailing alone through the peaceful evening sunshine. The German aeroplane had disappeared; the naval escort, the destroyer WOLVERINE and the sloop STORK were out of sight over the horizon. As the evening grew chilly, the Battalion went below to eat and sleep. The CHOBRY was a new Polish motor ship, comfortable and well-provisioned. “This is the way to go to war,” said one officer. “It‘s all very well,” said Colonel Faulkner, “but it only needs one bomb. It would go through this ship like a hot knife through butter. Also, I have no information at all. I do not know whether our landing will be opposed or not, but I think it will be pretty sticky, particularly if the German aircraft spot us. We will land about four o‘clock, so I will advise you all go to bed early and get some sleep while you can. Nobody ever gets enough sleep in this country.”

    At midnight three Heinkels bombed the ship. The entries in the War Diary are laconic:

    0015hrs 15th May, H.M.T. CHOBRY bombed and set on fire. Ship abandoned.
    0930hrs Arrival of STORK and WOLVERINE at HARSTADT.


    Naval reports are notoriously brief and unemotional. The Commodore, Rear-Admiral BURKE, R.N., wrote to the Admiralty:

    The calm courage shown by the troops can hardly - if ever - have been surpassed and is best illustrated by the following: -
    Embarked 2a.m.; under frequent bombing attack all day cooped up at anchor - 300 or more were collected on the forecastle - whole midship part of the ship a raging furnace - enemy planes overhead - 50 tones of ammunition in the hold - rescuing destroyer alongside. Not a man moved until I gave the order, which was not until I judged that men from the rest of the ship had got off. When they did move, they did so at a deliberate walk, some even refusing to part with their rifles. It was naturally not possible to single out anyone particularly, but I did notice the very admirable conduct of the Roman Catholic Chaplain.”


    “I turned in about 2230hrs,” said one of the Fleet Air Arm officers, Lieutenant COMPSTON, R.N., “and went to sleep almost immediately. The next thing I remember was the crack of machine-guns and the roar of aircraft engines overhead. Familiarity truly breeds contempt, and my cabin companion and I decided it was no good getting up and hoped the enemy would miss us as he had done for the past few days. Unfortunately this was not the case, and no sooner had we turned over to go to sleep again than there was the most deafening roar I have ever heard or want to hear. The ship had been struck abaft by large calibre bombs - one at least incendiary. My cabin collapsed immediately, and the lights went out. I left the cabin and ran through the adjoining dining saloon - the floor of which was covered with glass and debris - cutting my feet rather badly, and on reaching the port side of the ship saw that she was already ablaze."

    Lieutenant J. GILLIAT shared a cabin with Lieutenant C.A. M.-D.-SCOTT. “He had the bottom bunk, because I am more agile than he. At about 1130hrs I was awakened by a bang, not a big one, as I thought it might be stores being moved. As my feet touched the floor, the lamp burst and glass flew around the room. I grabbed my watch and life-belt, put my feet into boots (unlaced) and went out into the passage, followed by ANDREW SCOTT in similar undress. I must have looked like a slightly obscene pantomime dame. The passage was dark and a thick with acrid smoke gripped one‘s throat. I thought we were done for.” The boots belonged to Lieutenant C.A. SCOTT.

    “It was the unluckiest thing in the world that the bombs all landed near by the senior officers‘ cabins,” wrote Captain M. GORDON-WATSON. “I‘m afraid the first one must have killed JACK D.-MATHEWS and FREDDIE LEWIN and the second or third the COMMANDING OFFICER, JOHN BOWEN, TOMMY H.-PAIN and BRIAN O‘NEILL.”

    “The cabins collapsed like a pack of cards,” said one of the Brigade Staff Officers, “lights went out, the whole of the top decks amidships were immediately ablaze and very soon the main staircase seemed to have disappeared.”

    Guardsman DRAPER, the sentry at the head of the stairs, was killed at his post. Of the servants and orderlies sleeping in the corridor outside the cabins, Guardsman O’CONNELL had his arm broken and ARMER was pinned to the ground badly burnt. Guardsman ARMER, the C.O.’s orderly, extricated himself from the wreckage and struggled through the smoke to his cabin. There was no trace of Colonel FAULKNER. Guardsman ALLEN dragged Major GILBERT-DENHAM out of his cabin and carried him up to a life-boat. Captain D.H. FITZGERALD was having a shower when the first bomb exploded. He and his servant, Guardsman O’SHEA, were trapped in the bathroom and had to get out into the sea through a port-hole. Lieutenant F. LEWIN, who shared his cabin, was killed in his sleep.

    The fire spread rapidly, for the explosion had wrecked the sprinkler system. P.S.M. MORROW, and Guardsman SULLIVAN, the Battalion Fire Orderly, struggled to get the hoses working, but there was no water in the hydrants. “Theirs was a very creditable performance,” said Lieutenant I.H. POWELL-EDWARDS, “since this task appeared almost hopeless from the start.” The crackle of .303 and the red and green flares of exploding Very lights mingled with the steady firing of the A/A barrage. The Heinkels circled overhead at a respectable height, “waiting to machine-gun the boats,” thought Lieutenant J. GILLIAT gloomily. So, too, thought Lieutenant COMPSTON, R.N., “but to our surprise they were gentlemanly enough not to machine-gun us in the water as we expected. Their main interest seemed to be to take photographs.”

    After the first explosion the Battalion was ordered up on deck. The fire divided the ship into two halves, with the result that the most of the men had to go forward and most of the officers aft. The companies filed up from their mess decks, in full kit, carrying their rifles and Brens. “Get on parade - face that way.” At the sound of R.S.M. STACK’s familiar voice the companies formed up in mass, D./Sergeant HOEY in front, D./Sergeant PEILOW in rear. The sentries already on deck acted as markers. Only one man jumped overboard; he broke his neck on his lifebelt.

    The lifeboats forward could not be lowered, for “the power was cut off and the electric winches were unworkable; the Herculean efforts of the Guardsmen on the hand winches proved of no avail.” There was nothing to do but wait till the escorting destroyer came alongside. Father Cavanagh began to recite the Rosary. On a burning ship in the Artic Circle men said the prayers that they had learnt in the quiet churches and farmhouses of IRELAND. Rescue parties searched the burning wreckage and brought the wounded up on deck. Sergeant JOHNSON, the Medical Sergeant, cleared an area on the promenade deck for an R.A.P. and there collected and tended the casualties. His first two casualties were the doctor, Captain A.D.F. O’NEILL, and Captain R. McGILDOWNY both of whom were unconscious. Only four men were now reported missing - Guardsmen J. O’DONNELL, WIDDISON, P. KILLIAN and R. TWEED. Guardsman CALLAGHAN - “Mushy” CALLAGHAN of No. 3 Company - knew that they must be trapped by fire down below in the hold. He threw a rope over the ship’s side and swung from porthole to porthole till he discovered them, and hauled them out one by one up on to the deck.

    The winches aft were still working, so the Polish crew lowered the first flight of lifeboats. These were already full with mixed loads of soldiers, sailors and wounded. Lieutenant COMPSTON, R.N., with his boat load, “cast off and drifted away from the CHOBRY to see the escorting destroyer, H.M.S. WOLVERINE, approaching fast to come along the starboard side. We headed for the other ship - the sloop STORK. At this moment I must praise the courage and devotion to duty of the men of your Regiment who, in spite of finding themselves in an element which is certainly not their own, showed the greatest calm - many of them carrying their kitbags and rifles to the lifeboats and waiting patiently to embark - without the slightest sign of panic. We had great difficulty in parting them from their weapons.” No mere naval disaster could shake the effect of the Depot, reinforced by a Sergeant shouting at them, “Take care of those rifles, they are government property.”

    “In the lifeboat,” continues Lieutenant COMPSTON, “they were magnificent, and once they had been told to obey orders of one officer, they never faltered. I shall always be grateful to one Guardsman who gave me his battle-dress tunic to put over my cold and wet silk pyjamas which was all I stood up in. Another Guardsman gave me his scarf and they all did their best to keep the most scantily clad of us from freezing in the incredible cold. We had rather difficulty in getting the Polish crew to row and do as they were told - possibly this was because I was a British officer and they had their own ideas - but on the whole they were calm. Eventually in the crowded life-boat we managed to get Guardsmen to man the oars. They did as we asked them and after about thirty minutes in the water we managed to row alongside the sloop STORK. They still behaved with the greatest reserve, obeying every calmly given order of the N.C.Os. Because as the boat was crowded there was a great possibility that if they disembarked too quickly she might have overturned.”

    The crew lowered the second flight of boats aft while they could, and then slid down the rope after them. Some men, led by the Quartermaster, who ruptured himself, followed them, and swam to the half-empty boats.

    Lieutenant B.O.P. EUGSTER, M.C., also started to go down a rope, very slowly in the orthodox P.T. style, hand over hand. A solid block of six Polish sailors slid down on top of him an swept him into the sea. He was wearing bright pyjamas when he went into the water; he came up stark naked. Lieutenant H.L.S. YOUNG could not swim; Lieutenant P.M. FITZGERALD did not like the look of the water; Lieutenant C.A. SCOTT, questioned the Polish Captain and learnt that it would take the ship twenty-four hours to burn herself out and sink, though she might blow up at any time. The three of them decided to stay on board and stop anyone else from sliding down into the water. If the ship blew up, everyone would go into the water anyway; if it did not, they might as well keep warm and dry.

    By the time the escort came up there were some twenty heads bobbing about in the sea, for the fire amidships was spreading and forcing isolated men overboard. The STORK launched the whaler to pick them up. She herself stood off astern, engaging the bombers with her guns, and taking on board the lifeboats. H.M.S. WOLVERINE came alongside starboard.

    “We closed on their burning and sinking ship,” said Commander CRASKE, R.N. “I never before realized what the discipline of the Guards was. We got a gangway shipped forward and the men were ordered to file off on to us. There was on confusion, no hurry, and no sign of haste or flurry. I knew that there might be only a matter of minutes in which to get them off. I had four ropes fixed so as to hurry up the transfer. They continued to file steadily off in one line. I cursed and swore at them, but they had orders to file, and they filed. I saw someone who seemed to me to be a young officer and in no measured terms I told him to get them off by all four ropes. In a second they conformed to this order by one of their own officers, still steadily and without fuss or confusion. Their conduct in the most trying circumstances, in the absence of senior officers, on a burning and sinking ship, open at any moment to a new attack, was as fine as, or finer than, the conduct in the old days of the soldiers on the BIRKENHEAD. It may interest you to know that 694 were got on board in sixteen minutes.”

    Two years later Admiral CRASKE wrote to the Regimental Lieutenant-Colonel:
    “You will not know me. My son, Commander R.H. CRASKE, R.N., was in command of H.M.S. WOLVERINE in May, 1940. He lost his life in H.M.S. BARHAM in November, 1941, and amongst the papers he had treasured is your letter to him referring to the rescue of the Battalion from the CHOBRY. He never mentioned the affair till the following December, when he was awarded the D.S.C., and then told us very little, except that any rescue would have been impossible but for the superb discipline of the men of the Battalion.”

    The “letter” was a message from Officer Commanding, 1st Irish Guards dated 16th May, 1940:
    “I wish to convey to you the deepest gratitude and admiration of all ranks for the bravery and skill displayed by officers and crews of H.M.S. WOLVERINE and STORK. It was entirely due to your gallant action that so many lives were saved.”

    “The sailors were wonderful,” wrote an officer, “and made coffee and cocoa and gave us clothes. We had a seven-hour journey back to HARSTAD and were bombed all the way. Not a good ending.”

    The destroyer WOLVERINE arrived at HARSTAD first and discharged its load of survivors on the quay. “What a funny feeling it is to have nothing except what you stand up in.” They came ashore wrapped in blankets and naval greatcoats over pyjamas and dungarees. Stretcher-bearers carried the wounded off first, and laid them in a little tin shed. From there, the worst cases, Major GILBERT-DENHAM, Guardsman CORBETT and Guardsman SLINEY, were taken straight to the Base Hospital. D./Sergeant PEILOW jumped ashore and doubled away to look for a square. He found one and put out company markers, while R.S.M. STACK ordered the men straight on parade. They fell in - “a proper Battalion parade” - and waited for the other boat to arrive. The SCOTS GUARDS R.Q.M.S., still at HARSTAD with their Base Details, with real charity, sent down containers of tea and mounds of ‘wads’. The Officers and the Company Sergeant-Majors waited on the quay for the STORK to come in. Everybody was desperately hoping that Lieut.-Colonel FAULKNER would be on board. As the STORK came in, they saw Captain M. GORDON-WATSON in pyjamas standing on the bridge, and shouted enquiries. “Where‘s Colonel FAULKS?” “No sign.” “JACK?” “Never seen.” And so on, I almost cried.”

    The Company Sergeant-Majors collected their men off the sloop and called the roll on the square. “We were surprised to find so few men missing.” The Battalion marched out of the town to the village of ERVIK.

    Senseless indeed given the delay and the presence of enemy aircraft all day.

    As far as I can tell these are the men who died as a result of the Chobry incident. 6 Officers, including the C.O., and 6 Guardsmen.

    From IG WW2 History, by FitzGerald:

    It was on 15th April that the 1st Battalion landed at HARSTAD. In 1914 the Battalion had gone abroad with the first flight of the B.E.F. and had fought through the retreat from MONS. In 1940 the Battalion landed for action five days after the real war began. At home the British public waited for news of this tiny force - but nobody guessed how few they were - who had disappeared into the darkness of the northern spring.

    The British Army, we are told, should be a projectile fired by the Navy to strike the enemy at his weakest point. The Navy had carried the 24th GUARDS BRIGADE safely across the North Sea and launched it against the Germans in Northern NORWAY. Other projectiles had been fired at central NORWAY, at NAMSOS and ANDALSNES. If these cleared the NARVIK area, their combined force would move down and chase the Germans out of NORWAY.

    These hopes and plans ended in failure and depression. The campaign was a tragedy, made more grievous by endurance of the few troops who did the fighting with inadequate material. From the beginning of May a sense of ineluctable fate hung over NORWAY. There remained only an unshakable confidence in the magnificent spirit and companionship of the Battalion and in the skill and gallantry of the Royal Navy. The discipline, tradition and steadfast courage of the Battalion saved it from annihilation on the Chobry and disintegration at BODO, and brought it proudly through the collapse with dearly bought experience and credit. But all the battles in AFRICA, ITALY, FRANCE, HOLLAND and GERMANY, longer and bloodier though they were, could not efface the memory of the Norwegian campaign as the worst of all experiences.

    What happened in NORWAY? Briefly, it was this. The Battalion sat round the shores of the OFOTEN FJORD, slowly edging closer in to NARVIK, waiting for Force H.Q. to make up their minds. The question was, would it be possible to lay on a naval bombardment effective enough to cover an assault landing? This question was never decided. After three weeks the Allied troops in central NORWAY were evacuated to save them from complete destruction.

    There is only one way through NORWAY to the NORTH. Now it lay wide open. The Staff ordered the 24TH GUARDS BRIGADE to move nearly two hundred miles SOUTH, to Mö, the narrowest part of NORWAY. They thought, apparently, that there was no reason why the Brigade should not hold up the entire German Army a Mö for ever, but out of the whole Brigade only the 1ST BN. SCOTS GUARDS ever arrived at Mö. The Chobry, carrying the Battalion, was bombed and sunk, and H.M.S. Effingham, carrying the 2ND BN. SOUTH WALES BORDERERS, struck an uncharted rock. The SCOTS GUARDS could not hold on and began a hundred mile retreat on foot. The Battalion refitted as best they could and went SOUTH again, this time to BODO to hold the road a hundred miles behind the SCOTS. After the SCOTS had passed through, the Battalion held on for a week and was then evacuated to HARSTAD. Meanwhile the French and Poles had captured NARVIK, fighting with great gallantry and suffering heavy casualties, but every ship and man was now needed at home.

    On 4th June the Battalion went back to ENGLAND.

    Also from FitzGerald's book, something a little lighter:

    Three German bombers were overhead. The cruiser’s guns kept the aircraft up at a great height, but some of the bombs fell unpleasantly close. In the fishing boat they could clearly see the bombs glittering in the sun directly overhead and called for more speed from the engines. Thousands of stunned fish floated up to the surface. When the bombers had gone the Norwegians scrambled into rowing boats and had the easiest day’s fishing in their lives.

    The “puffer” reached LILAND pier just as a seaplane flew in low over the village. It was an old Walrus from H.M.S. Southampton, carrying the Admiral to Aurora. The anti-aircraft post by the pier greeted it with a sharp burst of Bren gun fire. The seaplane climbed steeply and then came down again and circled round for recognition. The Bren gun opened up again.
    “Who is in charge of that post?” asked Colonel FAULKNER.
    “Lance-Corporal LUDLOW, sir.”

    Lance-Corporal LUDLOW (generally known as “Twenty to Four” from the angle of his feet) was marched into the Commanding Officer’s Orders the next morning as “idle in the recognition of aircraft.” Sympathetic friends were waiting for him outside the Battalion H.Q.
    “What did you get?”
    “Reprimand.”
    “What for?”
    “Missing a low-flying admiral.”

    Hi Andy,

    As close as I can get, your uncle joined IG in December 1939 just before Christmas...

    As Tom mentioned in the other thread, he was killed near Djebel Bou Aoukaz.

    This is from the 1Bn War Diary, Tuesday, 27th April 1943:

    Place - Points 151 and 187
    The Bn was preparing to take part in a Brigade attack on the hills to the East of us, Djebel Bou Aoukaz, our objectives being Pts 212, 214, 181 and 128, zero hours 1900hrs, when the time was put forward by Division and the zero hour became 16oohrs.

    1530hrs
    The Bn began to move out of its forward edge of Olive Grove, East of Pt 187. This movement was observed by enemy O.Ps and from then until Pt 212 was finally captured, the Bn was subjected to continuous fire from shell, M/Gs, mortars, and, peculiarly unpleasant, six-barrel mortars. The Bn advanced, in broad daylight, across an open yellow cornfield and finally reached the Olive Grove. This grove gave little shelter, and was in addition, a German registered mortar task. Casualties up to date had been heavy.

    Captain J.B. Fitzgerald, Lieutenant J.G.A. Pym and R.Q.M.S. Peilow being killed, Captain I.H. Powell-Edwards, Lieuts. C.A. Larking, D.C.W. Lloyd-Thomas, and D.C. Attlee being wounded. Bn H.Q. had been established on the forward edge of the olive grove - the Start Line - and from there the C.O. kept control of the battle, as far as communications would allow.

    1900hrs
    By now the Companies were very weak - the cornfield and olive groves were strewn with wounded men, and groups of walking wounded were making their way back to the R.A.P. It was now obviously impossible to carry out the original plan. Nos. 1 & 4 Coys were being held up in front of pt 212: Nos 2 & 3 Coys, on their way to Pt 128, had suffered heavy casualties, and had run into German Armoured Cars and tanks in the olive groves. The C.O. decided to concentrate on Pt 212. An artillery concentration was put down on this pt and on a farmhouse which was blocking the approach to it. Captain O.S. Chesterton, though wounded, led No. 1 Coy into the attack again; some 50 German infantry were seen to be leaving the hill in some haste. Bn H.Q. with what men it could collect, advanced to the top of Pt 212. Two enemy officers were taken prisoner. Lieut C.D. Kennard with 30 men of No. 3 Coy then arrived, followed by Lieut T.C. Keigwin with 25 men of No. 2 Coy. The force on the hill now amounted to 170 all ranks.

    1930hrs
    It was getting dark, and the stretcher bearers were working hard, trying to collect all the wounded men and bring them to the line of the road, where they were collected by the ambulance. The force established itself on Pts 212 & 214 and the ridge connecting them, digging itself in as best as it could in the rocky ground, in preparation for a dawn counter-attack.

    2230hrs
    Three carriers with rations, water and ammunition made their way to the eastern foot of the hill, and a large carrying party brought up the supplies. No sleep was had that night.

    Thanks for that. I find it hard to imagine what life was like back then in the war having never experienced it myself, but with accounts like this and many others, gives a sad but valuable insight into what was happening.

    Could you advise me on how to get his service record.
