    GUNNER WILLIAM MARTIN DCM

    [​IMG]

    Gunner William Martin DCM served in 367 Battery, 140th Field Regiment during 1939-40 as Driver to Major E.A. Milton. He was captured with Major Milton during the Breakout from Cassel on 30th May 1940, his small group having been surrounded by German tanks. I have posted his full story, including his incredible escape from captivity, on the 140 Regiment website 367 Battery- ‘The Ones Who Got Away’ – 140th (5th London) Army Field Regiment, Royal Artillery

    Post Dunkirk, William Martin transferred to the 50th Mechanical Equipment Company, Royal Engineers.His new Regiment was involved in the D-Day landings and, sadly, on the 8th June 1944, he was killed on the Sword beach in Normandy, at the age of 26 years. He is buried in a CW at St Andrews Churchyard, Aveton-Gifford, near to his home in Devon.
