Hi all, Tracing what I can about Cyril Douglas Langdon now until I get the service records (which I understand might be a while!) He was my great Uncle. Service number 6146181, he served in the 5th Battalion of the Buffs and died on the 5th November 1943. He is buried in the Sangro river War cemetery, my mother has been fortunate enough to have visited. From what I have read (mainly on these forums) this means he would have been fighting at the time he died as part of the 78 Division? Is anyone able to tell me roughly what the 78th Division would have been doing at this time? Im planning on getting me a copy of Keith Fords Battleaxe Division Book. Also, from what I have read, being part of the 5th The Buffs. I would have expected his service number to have started with 62 rather than 61. Does this mean he served elsewhere before? Thanks to all!
