    Hello,
    Does anybody know if the above Battalions war diary lists injured casualties?
    A bit of a long shot but maybe someone has a copy of the diaries.
    A member has already contacted me with regard to copies, and I may well take him up on that, but just asking to see if anyone knows.
    Thank you all for your time

    I have the 4th KSLI three-volume regimental history June 44-May 45. It does have a Roll of Honour of deaths, but no lists of wounded.

    What is the name of the person you are interested in finding? I also have the regimental history of the KSLI.

    Hello dryan67, thank you for your reply.
    I to have the histories etc of the Bn.
    The person I'm after is my wife's grandfather, he was in France only for 7 days before he was badly wounded by a morter round. His words, this is what he told me. I haven't got his service record on me at the moment, but I can get his Army number and exact date of injury later.
    His name was Kenneth Hooper Norris, injured around July/Aug ,1944.
    Just maybe thought his name may have been mentioned.
    Many thanks again.

    Yes I did, but I now have the number and date to which the person I'm looking for was injured, I was going to ask if someone could let me know what was happening in and around the dates.
    Sorry ,I should have been more clear,
