    JimHerriot Ready for Anything

    Dear dbf, No.80 (maybe?) for your consideration (and thank you so much for starting this thread, again, excellent work on your part).

    From a thread started by Vitellino a few months back (just one of many humbling threads started by this dear lady).

    Lieutenant Fleming and Rifleman Savage LRDG Italy June 1944

    I'd posted the casualty details in pdf format within said thread (as I'd hoped at the time they would be easier for Vitellino to download for her records).

    Kind regards, always,

    Jim.

    Thanks Jim,
    Rather than messing about with original thread, I've created new threads for each man and linked your post in both.
