In an attempt to find information of my father's military service with the Coldstreamers before and during WWII I'm asking for any tips anyone has to offer please ... B. 1919 but fudged his age at 17, was sent to Caterham before heading to Palestine during "Arab Revolt" around 1938 (I think) Then possibly back to Windsor Barracks for public duties (century at Windsor Castle) before going off Western Desert Campaign ... I don't understand all the Divisions and Battalians but think he was part of : 70th Infantry Div / 7th Infantry Div. /. 3rd Battalion (Middle East) /. 22nd Infantry Brigade or 6th Inf Div A desert Rat under Montgomery he was captured at Tobruk by Germany and handed over to Italy. Spent time interned in Egypty(?) before being shipped via Brindizi to Bari. Interned in Bari a while before escaping with assistance of Italian Resistance Movement. If anyone can direct me to where to look for information I'd be most grateful. Dad wasn't any kind of decorated hero - he was just an ordinary bloke doing his bit for King and Country. He seldom spoke of the war but when he did it seemed like they were really hard times. I wish I'd paid more attention but now he has passed I have no way of asking him things about these times. Thanks in Advance.
