  1. Very nice Geoff its in great condition ive a major display coming up for a museum and hope to get a good lot of the kit cataloged while its out then will start to add on to site

    thanks again for your kind words

  2. Right guys you aint going to believe this the information you found helping me in the direction of the cousins I have found Hugh White the POW from WW2 he is still alive but well on in life and living in a nursing home in Canada I am at present try to establish comms to see if we will be able or willing to talk about the war and especially his cousin my uncle and may be shed some light on his death in the retreat to dunkirk and possible Le Paradis this is a major break through also I have located his younger sister living here in Northern Ireland and she has Samuels medals which ive been told is ten he served on the russian convoys and his ship was sank 3 times its amazing he survived.
    He also for the first time went to see his brothers Johns grave in Italy in 2004 and sadly in early 2005 was knocked down by a hit and run driver a shame to a guy that survived all those years at sea and being sunk as the information comes through I will add it to the about me page on my website at
    War Years Remembered; Bringing History Alive for all Generations

    again thank you to those who helped its very much appreciated

    Yours Davey

    Davey. Did you visit Paradis on the 27th? There was a veteran from the battalion at the cemetery on that day.
