    Hi there,

    I am looking for debriefing reports for the action 30RM had in my hometown of Kerkdriel on 23 April 1945. A lot of Marines were missing and came back later.....for my investigation i need to know if there are any to be found?
    And yess i do have the complete war diary already.
    All info welcome.

    Cheers
    Ronny

    Nobody?? Are they to be found in Kew? If so under which number??
     
  3. A simple search gives:
    30 Battalion | The National Archives

    ADM 202/123

    But I suppose this is the War Diary that you already have? Unless you have a different version which might or might not be less complete?

    Have you tried the Brigade War Diary?

    Are there any appendices to the War Diaries? - and if so - do you have them all ?

    Is there a 30 RM veterans association or similar that may have some details?

    There's this file too, assuming it's the same unit.
