Hi All I have been trying to find out about some of my Fathers Journey though Normandy summer 1944, There some places he would like to return to during our Pilgrimage in June. Father says as a Reconnaissance unit they worked independently from the unit sending messages via a despatch rider. One place he would like to visit is a small meadow were they found several dead Germans placed in a ditch four high he thinks there could have been getting on for 100, Another spot they were getting ready to bed down for the night with a few Tanks and Infantry when 3 Focker Wolf’s flew over hedge hopping one which dropped his bombs missing them and not being able to pull up in time and blew himself up. Father was with 2nd Troop 621st Field Squadron Royal Engineers 7th Armoured Division. I have looked at books like A Short History 7th Armoured Div June 1943 to July 1945. Talked with Desert Rat Association who put me in touch with there historian a very helpful man who put be in touch with Gentleman who for personal reasons has spent many hours and expense researching the 621, But unfortunately can not help Reasons 1) Files War Diaries are lost - may be due to the fluidity of the conflict at the time or may be destroyed during fighting -Who Knows. 2) Or the said files have been wrongly referenced-so we never found. But go’s on to say may be the 7AD or Chief Royal Engineer files may shed light at a higher level. I just don’t know what to try next Any Help or ideas would be greatfully appreciated. Andy and Frederick.
