    this chap must have been in a reserved occupation to have joined in early '43 - according to his number - done some training - transported to Burma - to die in less than eighteen months....but not

    all that unusual as many were younger at D Day

    Cheers

    Can anyone add anything to Alfred Milner's storey?
    He's another one of fallen commemorated on the Castle Bromwich War memorial I'm researching.
    Kind regards

    Tom, he's recorded in 1939 Register as a solderer of electric heaters, doesn't sound like a reserved occupation, but surprising it appears he didn't join up until 1943.
