Another uncle! (See Portfleet Leonard). Killed 08/05/43, Tunisia. Buried Massicault War Cemetery. Number, 770453. Apparently he was killed when another gun jammed, and as he went to help, it exploded. It may be that his brother, Johannes (Joe), was involved - Joe survived. 1. Any info sought. 2. Did our guns explode regularly? I know nothing about them! blackdubh.
