    Has anyone on the forum has got copies of the war diaries for 212 & 244 Company of the Pioneer Corps for May and June 1945?

    I am researching two privates from these companies who are buried in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. I would like to find out more about the circumstances of their deaths. The burial reports from the local archives mention no more than 'killed on active service'.

    Hi Pieter,

    I’ll be in Kew in the next few weeks - I can copy them for for you. What are the individuals names and dates you’re interested in?
