    Welcome to the Forum from a fellow 'Yellowbelly': brought up in the Spalding area.

    The 4th Lincs served in 49Div (as I'm sure you know) and alongside my late fathers Regiment - 24th Lancers - in lovely (sic) places such as Tessel Wood in Normandy.

    Hi Polarbear and welcome from a son of a 7 Lincoln/converted to R.A.

    What's his name, so I can give you a copy of his name in the Lincoln's Nominal Roll.
