Hello all, I am researching the life and career of a man named Donald Boyd Wilson (1910-2002) for a magazine article. The feature will mostly be about his film and television work, but as he served during the Second World War I'd also like to cover what he did during the war, although it's all a bit of a mystery so far. I know from his obituaries that he joined the Cameronians, which had been his late father's regiment. I know from the London Gazette that he was commissioned as a Lieutenant in March 1940, and I know from his own oral history interview held by the British Film Institute, recorded in 1991, that he'd volunteered initially as a private before being sent to an officer training establishment in Dunbar. (Frustratingly, that's about all he says about his military career in the interview). I know he was a Major by the end of the war, and that certainly at Christmas 1944 and possibly for some months either side of that he was serving with the 43rd (Wessex) Division. (He designed the division's Christmas card that year!) His newspaper obitiuaries from 2002 claim he was "divisional assistant adjutant general" to General Ivor Thomas. He was apparently involved in the burying of bodies after the liberation of Belsen, an experience that so profoundly affected him that he travelled to Israel to attend some of Eichmann's trial in the 1960s. (I have not yet found any official mention or record of his role at Belsen, however). He was demobilised in October 1945, and returned to the film industry. That's about all I have so far. I have started doing some reading around the subject of the Cameronians and the 43rd Division, which although useful background hasn't yet turned up any specific mention of him. I don't yet know which Cameronian battalion he joined - his father had commanded the 7th at Gallipoli, where he was killed, but I don't know if that necessarily means Donald also joined the 7th. I have applied to the Ministry of Defence for the basic, stripped-down version of his service record that may be available to non-related researchers. I am also in contact with his daughters, so it's possible I may be able access his full service record if they are willing to apply for it. So I'd be very grateful for any advice about other sources I could consult, and where I could look. I have found this one record of him on the South Lanarkshire District Council website, a mention in dispatches for bravery: http://www.sllcmuseumscollections.co.uk/search.do?id=138679&db=object&view=detail&mode=1 In the "recommended by" column, it says "2 PD NWE". I imagine that "NWE" must mean "North West Europe", but can anyone advise as to what the other bit means? Thanks in advance for any and all help and recommendations!
