    Just had this email in admin account.

    I would like to thank who ever put up my father's name today in memorium.
    Capt George Fitzroy Cordy-Simpson 3rd Carabiniers died April 18th 1945 . He was returning in his tank in N Germany when hit by a sniper. One shot the only casulty.
    I was born 6 weeks later - so never knew him. So sad for my mother Patricia.
    I am researching his life in the Army. If anyone knows of anything relevant please contact me. He served in India and N. Africa as well as Germany.



    I must say that he must have been serving in another regiment as 3rd Carabiniers only fought in the Far East
