    I'm researching Private John Elliott Snowball 7626505 Royal Army Ordnance Corps. I understand he was killed in action on 4th July 1942 at Port Said, Egypt. Does anyone have access to the requisite war diaries to understand how he died.
    Kind regards
    Alan

    hello Alan
    do you have his service records?
    a couple of members on the forum offer a copy service of war diaries from Kew for a reasonable fee
