    Hi

    Here is an entry in the December 1944 war diary for 2nd Independent Parachute Squadron, Royal Engineers.

    It seems to say that a Sapper Brough of B Troop was seriously wounded when clearing mines in Athens.

    Trouble is I cant find any other record of it. It's not anywhere in the Casualty Lists 1939-1945. It's nowhere on the CWGC, assuming he may have died from his wounds. Nothing.

    Maybe it's not Brough!

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Assume you mean December 1944

    Looks like Brough to me

    There were just one casualty recorded in Greece that day and that was Sapper Brough.

    Bummer

    Yes, I spotted that was wrong too and corrected the post accordingly.

    I cant seem to find him as a death, so could have survived the war etc - without more details........
