    I'm hoping to make contact with anyone who has researched the Lincolnshire Regiment in WW2. I'm trying to find where they were and any action that was taking place on the 14th October 1944 when a local lad, Cpl Albert Bainbridge was killed.

    hope this helps start you off, some pages from Monty's Iron Sides by Delaforce and Assault Division by Scarfe.

    edit: sorry images on their sides, I blame the forum software

    From the war diary of 2 Lincolns for 14 October 1944. The Lincolns took a lot of casualties that day in the area around Overloon.
