    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.

    Thank you very much for your reply. Certainly I can send you the citation. I can email it to you, or possibly send by WhatsApp to a mobile number if I can master the process.

    That would be fantastic, thanks. My email is xxAT xxxDOT co DOT uk I suppose everybody always says the same sort of things as we should have asked more questions earlier on.

    It is not a good idea to share your email in a public forum. You should go back and edit out your email address. If you wish to share and email with another member, then it is best to start a conversation with the member by clicking on his name of the left side of the message.
