I found this today in a box of bits at the carboot sale
Can you edit his name & number into the post . That way anyone searching for info on him will find it.
All done cheers for looking
Sid Fisher served with my Dad and were both captured at Arnhem and their ashes are side by side at Oosterbeek cemetery. I am helping with the following website Home | Ashes interred Oosterbeek and tonight I was asked if I had any more information about Sid. I was astounded to find this post, how sad to be put to a car boot sale but so glad you found it and took the trouble to post it here. Do you still have this?
Hi Maggie sorry it's taken so long to reply to your post, yes I still have everything I found, it's such a shame that it was left at the bootsale
Hi Vespa. Thanks for getting back to me. Was there anything else relevant to his war service? I met Sid a few times and he came to Dad's interment at the War Cemetery in 1989. I'm just trying to build up a war time folio for him to keep with Dad's papers as they went through so much together. My son (born after Dad died) has taken a great interest and will become the custodian of all my files, so reassuring to know it won't end up in a car boot sale!
Maggie There is a chapter dedicated to Sid Fisher in David van Buggenum’s book “B Company Arrived - The men” which was published in 2016. Just checked and it looks like copies are still available at Paul Meekins.co.uk
Many thanks, will order a copy.
HI Maggie sorry this is the only thing I can find in this collection with Sid Fishers name on it the rest is alot of paperwork for the veteran's club trips to Arnhem, I will gladly give you Sid's funeral service leaflet, if you like
Hi Vespa, thanks for the offer but I have downloaded the pictures you have put on and that will suffice. Many thanks to you and Horsapassenger for your help.
Kind Regards Maggie
