    Morning,

    Researching

    Maurice FANTHAM
    Marine PO/X 114817
    40 Royal Marine Commando, Royal Marines

    Maurice was mortally wounded on 10 October 1944 during an attack on Sarandë, Greece and succumbed in Bari on 13 October 1944.

    Would anyone have a detailed description of the attack or the War Diary, by any chance, please, which may indicate exactly how Maurice was wounded. I am aware he received shrapnel wounds in his pelvis, groin and abdomen.

    Many thanks,

    Regards,

    Graeme
