    I have been asked if I can find a picture of the officer mentioned above, he was the Mortar Platoon officer but was killed in action on 7.6.44. I have a photo of officers of the battalion taken just before D-Day but he is not identified on the photo, can anybody help? I think I have most of then named correctly .

    Going off his date of death and place of burial, it would appear that Capt PE Clark was seconded to the 1st Bn Hampshire Regiment, 231st Infantry Brigade, 50th (Northumbrian) Division.

    This is same brigade as the 2nd Bn Devonshire Regiment.
