    I'm searching for a photo or company/squadphoto from Fusilier J.A. Bills (4/5th Battalion,Royal Scots Fusiliers).
    Fusilier J.A. Bills,was killed in action on January 18th,1945 and is buried at the Commonwealth War Cemetery Sittard.
    Hope that someone can help or give me some advise about it.

    Yes,that's sure an interesting one.
    I can tell you that I have contact with a relative of Fusilier Bills,and he asked me if I perhaps could help him with a photo.
    The relatives also called him Bills,John Albert.(so I think this should be the right spelling).
