    Wilk34,

    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    The above list is that of the whole Regimental soldiers who were killed.

    I suppose the odds are that there may be one or more surviving, but tracing them will not be easy.
    I for one have no idea where to start apart from placing a request in the Royal British legion Magazine or military forums such as this.

    Regards
    Tom

    At the annual Service of Remembrance in Hexham, Northumberland, last month, a wreath was laid of behalf of the 3rd Reconnaissance Regiment Old Comrades Association. Must still have some members to pay for the wreath and keep the memories alive of those listed above.
    Regards,

    Your Great uncle is mentioned in the Roll Of Honour in 'The History Of the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers in the Second World War' (CN Barclay). On pages 154 and 155 it mentions that at "midnight 6/7th August both squadrons [B and C] were definitely held up and the enemy still in possession of the feature [high ground near Vire]. Lieut. DG Snelling was later awarded the Military Cross for the handling of his armoured car troop (C sqn.) in this engagement. ... Desultory fighting continued for the next few days..."

    They did some liaison work with the US 102nd Mechanised Cavalry Group during this period.

    Best,

    Steve.

    HI all new to this forum, looking fo info on trp Maurice Bateson no4541741 my late father inlaw, found in his doc,s 3 div commendation card signed by general LG Whistler to do with his courage and unselfish consideration for two wounded comrades when taken prisoner of war at Wetten on 3rd march 1945.
    Anyone know anything about this incident.

    Hello Bill,
    First, welcome to the forum.

    By chance I was at The National Archives a couple of weeks ago and copied 3 Recce’s missing personnel file which mentions your father-in-law.

    About 1500hrs on 3rd March 1945 near Kapellen Tpr M Bateson was captured after his vehicle was hit. The other members of the crew, L/Sgt R Byrne and Tpr R Inman were killed. Bateson then returned to his unit with a white flag and a German soldier. The German asked the British to remove two wounded British men on condition that Bateson returned as a prisoner. This duly happened.

    See attached PDF from WO 361/554 (North West Europe: 3rd Reconnaissance Regiment, Royal Armoured Corps; missing personnel. 1944 Jul 01 - 1945 Apr 30.). This give more details. Doesn't say who the wounded men were or what happened to them.


    What became of your father-in-law?



    Regards,
    Richard




    PS. Thanks Andrea for the Missing Personnel spreadsheet list. Wouldn’t have found this file otherwise.

    PPS. Yes, one day I'll get the rest of the file put on the forum!

    Maurice died in 1998 aged 79, what we know differs a bit from the record after the carrier was flipped maurice said the germans had no medic the trooper was already dead so he carried the sarg with a german escort to his lines, The germans took him into woods he thought he was going to be shot but they had other brit prisoners there. From there they were take to stalag x1b at follingbostel he was liberated april
