    I have created an internet site for the WW2 memories of my late father-in-law, who was in the Essex Yeomanry & 191st (Herts. and Essex Yeomanry) Field Regiment R.A. 1939-1946. It is purely to share the war years from his autobiography, which he wrote in 1994. Technically, it is a "blog" but I have not used it as one - the chapters have been created, following his autobiography, and there will only be an odd edit and no regular posts. All the content is on now and just waiting for anyone with an interest. . Thank you in advance: World War Two Memories of a Yeoman

    This is excellent; thank you for posting. I will study it closely. I am working on something similar for my Father who was also a Gunner (later Bombardier) in the EY but 431 "Harlow" Battery, "D" Troop. Mine is organised by year and is a long way from complete, and is being pulled together from reference resources as my Father did not write anything down, or indeed talk about it very much.

    Thanks for the complimentary words, Ian. I am sure you will find it worthwhile and rewarding to complete. My father-in-law did speak about many of his experiences and even gave lectures on them, locally. I was fortunate that, after being pestered by me, my father-in-law obliged by writing his autobiography. Good luck.

    The majority is his work, his words ... so it is he who deserves most of the credit. Thanks

    My father always spoke very kindly of Felix having served with him throughout the war. I know they remained friends until they both passed away.

    Hello Mick ... Thank you. Yes, Malcolm and I recall Felix often mentioning your father.
