    Anyone with any connection to 9th Medium Regiment RA on this forum? I have written their history but always on the look out for new information or photos or documents. Any contact with veterans would also be fantastic (though unlikely now).

    I served in the 9th Medium Regiment, in the troop command post of C troop,82 Battery, from Normandy to Germany. I was probably about the youngest man in the regiment then and am now 89, so i suppose there are not so many of us left.

    :) Well done Anthony,
    i know the feeling you get when in contact with a new veteran or relative of the regt.
    Have just found the son of the BSM 83Bty, with lots of doc's & pic's

    Rob,

    Indeed, I had given up hope, especially of contacting a veteran! This is special because, quite strangely, all the veterans I found over the years were from 81 Battery. This is the first from 82 and as you will know the two parts of the regiment operated almost independently. I am hoping for a new perspective, and answers to the questions I have...

    Anthony
