I am a new member so im saying hello and hoping this is the right way ... My dad was conscripted in WW2 at the age of 18. He was in the 3rd Reconaissance Regiment. He was trained in scotland, think Dumfries and sailed from Tilbury to Normandy Beach. He was landed at Sword Beach on 7th June 1944. They were landed on armoured vehicles and were told to head for Caen. He made a pact wth his mates to meet at Caen but it never happened. His group was stuck for a week as the Germans 21st Panzar Division were in situ. And despite the British Airboourne bombings they were trying to survive the allied bombings. My dad did eventually reach Caen which was totally devasatated. He has never been back since or wanted to. This year me my mum and dad are going to the D Day landing memorials as part of my dads 90th birthday. I know he would want to meet up with any of his regiment he landed on sword with in France or indeed at least hear from any other survivors or relatives of those men who served alongside my dad in the 3rd reconniassance. I know of the link to the Northumberland Fusiliers as he talked about the gerdie comrades. My dad is from Liverpool and his name is Arthur Sharkey. I would welcome any contact from other members of his regiment or from the4ir fanmilies. . After the liberation of Germany the £rd Reconaissance Regiment was disbanded and my dad was put into the 15th / 19th Hussars and weas shipped to Palestine. If there is anyone who served with my dad in france and Germany or Palestine, I would love to hear from you.
