Hello! I´m doing research about the 7th Bn Cameronians and the battalion´s actions during the period October 1944 to May 1945. A distant relative of mine was killed in action during the battle for Alpen (Alpon), Germany, in March 1945 and I wonder if anyone here knows anything about him and the battle he took part in. The information I have this far is: Name: James Dempsey McAlpine Born: 1912 (32 years old when killed) Dead: 9 March 1945 in Alpen (Alpon), Germany From: Kirkintilloch, Dunbartonshire Parents: John and Mary Dempsey McAlpine Brother: Andrew McAlpine, 2nd Bn Cameronians (killed 14 March 1941) Unit: 7th Battalion Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) Rank: Rifleman Servicenumber: 3253421 Buried: Reichswald Forest War Cemetery I appreciate all the help I can get. Thank You!
