    Bio by Graeme Clarke who is researching the Walsall roll of honour


    Leonard Joselyn MAY
    Trooper 14201804
    1st Regiment, Reconnaissance Corps, Royal Armoured Corps
    Died in Tunisia on Tuesday 11 May 1943

    Born in Belfast, Leonard was the son of Charles Archibald and Maud Mary May of 36, Aspely Road, Lower West, Bath and later of Clevedon, Somerset. His brother resided at 124, Blue Lane, Walsall.

    His parents were Salvation Army officers and moved to Walsall when Leonard was 8 years of age. Himself a Salvation Army bandsman, he was called up in 1941.

    Leonard was killed during his regiment’s advance towards Chaouai. The attack commenced on Thursday 6 May 1943 with the regiment obtaining all the day’s objectives by 6.45pm.

    On the day of Leonard’s death the regiment moved to Djdaou, patrolling as far as St. Marie de Zit farm.

    Killed during the day at 21 years of age Leonard is buried in Massicault War Cemetery in Grave III.H.3.

    Trooper LESLIE ELHANAN SCHALIT was almost certainly killed whilst a Prisoner of War in Campo PG 82 Laterina as 1 Recce Regiment were not fighting in Tuscany but at Anzio, where he would have been captured along with others who finished up in PG 82 when it was serving as a transit camp. Unfortunately I don't have anything definite on him,
