    Hi everyone, I am researching a soldier who it seems died in Londonderry on the 8th November 1943:-

    Service Number 1454734
    Died 08/11/1943
    Aged 22
    630 Bty., 188 H.A.A. Regt. Royal Artillery

    Son of Lloyd George and Leonora Parry; husband of Margaret L. T. Parry, of Arbroath.


    On his grave his widow states he died in Londonderry and on the website Second World War in Northern Ireland there are photographs of the Culmore Heavy Anti-Aircraft Gun Battery, Londonderry and wondered if his Regiment was there? Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks in advance, Kind regard, Mavis Williams

    Thank you TD, I have quite a bit on LLoyd George PARRY, it was the mystery, to me at any rate, what the HAA were doing in Londonderry, I cannot find anything on the Regiment being there, but of course logic tells me that they would be in need of HAA as well. Will have to try the newspapers. Regards, Mavis
