I am researching a family member who was in WWII and need some help getting some fine points to some rough facts. Trooper Foster (known as jack to his pal’s) was in C squadron of the 13th/18th Hussars on D-Day. His CO was Lt Smith and during the following 6 weeks he was in active service in Normandy with C Squadron. Around 6 weeks his tank was struck by an AP round that killed his driver and during the following events he was badly burnt. He was initially tended by French Nun’s and then by the medical corp. When Jack was stable he was returned to the England to spend a painful time in Basingstoke hospital having skin grafts. After the war he returned to civilian life as a bricklayer in St Helens, Lancashire. The questions I have are as follows; What was the Squadron make-up at the time of D-Day, how many tanks per troop and what composition. I am aware that C Squadron was not DD tanks but 75mm and 17 Pounded tanks, all tanks with names beginning with the letter C. What I would like to find out is what Tank was Jacks. What LCT Mk4 did he go over on? When (accurate date) and where did Jacks tank get hit. Who was in his crew and was Lt Smith his tank commander as well as his CO? Thanks for looking at this thread and I look forward to any information you can give.
