Hello Firstly I would like to say thank you .I have gained so much information reading these forums and have a much better understanding of what my Grandad and all those like him went through. I'm trying to find out as much as I can about him for my Mum and also to pass on to his six great grandchildren. Grandad's name was Cpl Douglas E C Brooks MM . He died in Italy 4th January 1945 and is buried at Forli. He was a signaller and was awarded the MM at Monte Camino. I wondered whether anyone knows what 9RF were doing in Italy at the time of his death . Any help would be appreciated . Thanks again.
