I am helping the family of Rifleman John Woodward to learn about their relative. At the moment the family know very little outside of the way he was killed. All they know was that John was in Egypt in '42 and that he was killed when he was carrying out some reconnaissance on August 30th 1944 whilst his batallion was in Fleury La Foret. He was apparently shot by a sniper. Am I right in thinking that his service records would be held at Kew? One interesting point about his grave is that the cross which is there has the '44' written in such a way that it resembles the form of the SS symbol. Is this common with people who were killed by the SS? I know that the SS were around along with the Hitler Jugen.
