    If anyone who reads this who knows a veteran of 53rd Welsh Division/fought with them - could you PLEASE get in contact with me? I'm moving onto the final stage of my first project and could really do with speaking to and interviewing some veterans.

    Drop me a line at jwarehistoricalconsultancy@hotmail.co.uk

    Cheers :)

    An update:

    First interviews have gone extraordinarily well!

    An insightful interview with a member of A Coy, 6 RWF who was captured during Operation Greenline on the attack on Ferme de Mondraineville.
    Another excellent interview with a 2 Mons veteran who became 160 Brigade Major's batman.

    Even better they are both recorded on high quality HD camera!

    So anyone know of anyone, dont hesitate to drop me a line.

    There is a gentleman who posted on the 53 Recce thread whose father in law is prepared to meet and have a "chat". Let me see if I can find the email address.

    Dave (you outbid me on that plate by the way ;-), as I already have one though, we should communicate more on these things)

    Stolpi, I will send you a copy of an interview which covers that when Part 2 of it has been concluded in a week or two.

    I wondered if I outbid you on it, we shall have to sort it out more properly in future! I recommend signal flares :p

    I've got quite a few addresses of 53rd Recce chaps I corresponded with back around 1998-2000, but some may be out of date, or sadly, they may no longer be with us.

    I know this may well be out of date. But I;m currently helping a vet from 7tg Batt RWF 53rd.
    He's 92 but in great health and mentally totally with it with great recall. Just had him interviewed by IWM and the stories he has are amazing.
    If anyone wishes to meet him for research, whatever then please do get in touch
    Chris C and 4jonboy like this.
