  9. John Dallamore
    Hi Chris and Phil,
    Looking at the reports I have John and Herbert left and entered Switzerland at different places but then were both interned at Caux.
    So John was certainly alive in Switzerland but the Swiss have no record of him when I enquired at Bern

    one is correct, is buried in Madras and served with 100 AT Regt, RA. The second entry has been removed from the database for Brookwood Memorial.

    Well done for finding another one.... a quick question, do the CWGC publicise when they are going to erect a new headstone? I only as as the churchyard is 'quite' close to me and I think it would be fitting to be there at any ceremony there might be.

    Regards
    Andy

    They dont normally publicize when they are going to put the headstone in but you can ask them directly. If there was going to be any ceremony that would have to be organised locally

    Hello,

    Whilst shooting graves in Harrow Cemetery for TWGPP in 2005, I discovered the grave of an RA Gunner who was wrongly commemorated on the Brookwood Memorial.

    In 2011 I organised a service at the Memorial to commemorate one of the two George Cross recipients, an unforgetable day and well attended. If you want the name of the RA Gunner, PM me.

    Interestingly some of the names on the Memorial should have gone on the Cassino Memorial in Italy.
     
  18. John(Jack) Dallamore

    John known as Jack sadly passed away shortly after coming back to the UK
    He unfortunately contracted T.B in the camps.
    So sad that he survived Tobruk and the prisoner of war camps plus the crossing over the Alps to pass away within twelve months of getting home.

    He has a memorial in Brookwood Military Cemetery which at the moment is a mystery as it is for soldiers with no known graves

    DALLAMORE, John (, age 24).
    Died at 7 Edward St Gt Houghton; Buried on November 24, 1945 in
    Grave Number 686, Section A of Darfield Cemetery, Darfield.

    His family confirm he is buried in Darfield in the family grave along with his his mother Ruth and father George

    I never knew what to expect when I started the research with so much information from single piece of paper with the name Giovanni Dallamore written on it
    which the Italian family had kept since 1943.
    It also contained my fathers name as well. Which also included his address
    Many thanks to those on this section who helped me
