    There is one on Wormhoudt, which you can buy at the Tourist Office there and also in Dunkirk. It is by a local French historian, but it is in English.

    Cheers for that Paul....I'm going back again later this year so I'll have a look for it in Dunkirk.

    I have a 92 page copy of a War Crimes File that contains statements on the incident made by C.E.Daley and A.Evans 2nd Warwicks. R.T.Parry 69th Mdm Rgt. R.A. and A.Montague.

    It is a Report that also contains some diagrams.

    Cheers,

    I'd be interested in seeing the diagrams and Parry's and Montague's statements. I've posted some exerts from Daley's and Evans on another thread.

    The File contains an interesting statement by Sepp Dietrich who says he spent some hours in a ditch pinned down by enemy fire and the Regiment was handed over to Sturmbannfuehrer Trabant in his absence.

    After receiving a most excellent disc from Brian regarding the Wormhoult massacre which contains witness statements, diagrams etc. Does anyone have anything similiar from Kew regarding Paradis?

    Cheers

    Andy,
    the Le Paradis files look even more interesting as they include the trial of Fritz Knoechlein for the murder of 97 P.O.W.

    Hi there, I am wondering g where I might get hold of a copy of this? Albert Montague was my grandfather and I would really like to read his account of this. Can you point me in the right direction please?

    Alli, hopefully someone else on the board can assist you. Brian (ADM199) passed away some years back.
