Hi, I'm on a quest, a war quest. I inherited my Nana's house before Christmas. It was in a run down state and worth very little due to my alcoholic uncle leaving it to rack and ruin. He lived downstairs and thankfully had left upstairs untouched. That's where I found the treasure! My granddad's brother, John had joined the British Army circa 1932 and had written home regularly. These letters and keepsakes had been secreted away in the dressing table, untouched since they had been delivered. He joined the 1st Battalion West Yorks Regt. and seemingly travelled extensively to Egypt, Sudan, Iraq, Iran, India, Palestine, Port Said and Aden. In 1942 he was with the 2nd Battalion West Yorks / 8th Army Sigs? In the Middle East. He then joined 10 Para training in Kibrit and was shot down on the second drop (we think) at Market Garden on 20th Sept '44. His descent record is on a photo on one of the posts on here actually. We have just booked to go to Arnhem in a few weeks, such is our quest, but if anyone could help by looking at their old photos or racking their brains or thinking about if they might know anything please contact me. I'd love to know more about his story. His letters are fascinating. Thanks.
