I was recently contacted by a new forum member requesting some help. Their Grandfather was a SG Guardsman during the war in italy and was captured by the enemy whilst on patrol with a sergeant who was killed in the incident. I promised I would make a thread about it in case anyone might be able to help down the line, We know very little about the individual, or the name of the sergeant. But there is a possibility he was in cassino, and may have been 2nd Bn SG. We have no name for the sergeant either (initially it was believed he was an officer but it now looks as though this isnt true) Now, a recent post from another user, along with the location Cassino, made me think that he could have been with "S" Coy SG/2nd BN coldstream. But I have dug up nothing so far regarding anyone lost on patrol (Although cassino is a big grey area thus fa for the 5 men lost whilst 2 CG was there). I am posting this in the hopes that someone may have a breif outline of what 2 SG did in Italy, or even have the war diaries. I have reccomended that they apply for his war record, which may give us dates sometime down the line but in the mean time assistance from anyone who knows anything about 2SG would be greatly appreciated. My first guess is that the incident may have been Monte Cammino... but thats just a hunch considering we dont know when he was taken.
