I've applied for my great uncle's service records but they haven't arrived yet so I don't yet know which company he served with. Would it be possible to get a copy of your fathers citation ? It would be great to have a better understanding of the events that were happening around that date. All we know or at least all I know was that the family were told that he had been wounded and was tragically shot by a sniper as he lay wounded and that his mates got the sniper. I made a mistake in my original post in that it was two months after he was killed that his only brother was killed with the Seaforths in Normandy. That sounds like a fantastic trip you are going on, wish you all the best with it.
