    If anyone wants a photograph of a specific headstone from Diego Suarez War Cemetery, I now have copies of them all, courtesy of Alex Totomarovario, who is the Honorary Cemetery Supervisor

    Also, does anyone in this thread know of any perspectives from soldiers who fought in the battle, it would be greatly appreciated!

    I cannot help you with your specific request mrspickensstudent, but you may be interested in the despatches of Rear-Admiral Syfret and Major-General Sturges which were published in the London Gazette.

    As far as Kenrick is concerned, a google search suggests his full name was Neville Cyril Evelyn Kenrick, and he was with the Wiltshire Regiment, part of 43rd Wessex Division, in Normandy. (that's from wikipedia) He was recommended for a DSO in May '45. But if your interest is in Madagascar I don't think that really helps.
