I’m hoping I could could get some help... My Grandad served with the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards, he was in Palestine as a L/Cpl in 1937 which is the only record I can find of him online. Family history says that he was in France in 1940 and got off the beaches having been shot in the leg. He was then due to go ashore at Dieppe, but his wave was called off. There are then stories of him being in the desert, before returning home and landing at D Day and being wounded at Caen. The issue with the above is quite a bit doesn’t fit, Mum was born early April 1944, so if he were at Dieppe and the North Africa he must have gone straight after Dieppe, returning mid 1943. Could he have gone out as an NCO to gain battlefield experience? Next he always said he was in a Sherman, now the Skins were in Cromwell’s while in Normandy, but I know they also had Firefly’s so that fits. What doesn’t fit is that he was there from 6 June, and there are no records of him being wounded in Normandy with the Skins (we’ve checked Tracks Through Europe). So here’s my questions, were 5RDG part of the ORBAT for Dieppe, did NCO’s get transferred to other units on active service? And who/where would he have transferred to if he was 7th Armoured from 42 onwards? I will be applying to MoD for his records, but thought I’d ask here first! Not sure how much of the above is hearsay. He was 408766 Dermot Whelan Thank you!
