Hi Everyone, My father was in the 8th Battalion Paras and was dropped on D-Day in the wrong area, missing their DZ (K). He was wounded in the arm shortly after the drop and by his account, taken prisoner. He also used to recount that he was tended by French nuns. He was posted missing from 6th June to 14th August 1944, when he was located in Smithsdown Road Hospital, Liverpool. I've been unable to trace anything at all about what happened to him in that period - where he may have been initially treated - how he got back to the UK - or when. On top of everything the hospital in Liverpool has not existed for some years. His details: 5892409 Pte Cyril Gibbs Palmer Cheers!
