Lieutenant Joesph Worth (Joe) 9th Battalion Merville Battery

Discussion in 'General' started by James Atkinson, Apr 13, 2017.

  1. Hello everyone ,

    I'm trying to find out as much as I can about my friend Paul's late father Joe worth. He knows that he was intelligence officer with 9th battalion parachute regiment during the attack on Merville Battery. I have found a photograph on line but that is about it.

    Could anyone help

    Many thanks

    As CL1 suggests his service records are the way forward and will eliminate a lot of guess work and wrong paths
