    Hi Iris, my step-grandfather, Gordon Turvey, a driver with 12th Lancers, was also in K Squadron.

    K left on the 19th February 1943, 14 officers, 91 other ranks, embarking on the SS Boissevain from Glasgow, and arriving in Algiers on the 5th March. E and K squadron were disbanded in November 43.

    3 officers and 35 other ranks from K, including Gordon, were posted to the reformed H squadron, continuing through Africa and Italy, whilst the rest of the squadron returned home.

    I'm sure they would have known each other!

    Please feel free to drop me a message, I'd love to hear more of you know any details of his time with K.
