    I suspect that he was badly injured whilst 2 Lancs Fus were in the line up on Snakeshead Ridge at Cassino in Apr 44, was evacuated through the medical system and died at a Gen Hospital in Bari.

    Stuart Avery In my wagon & not a muleteer.

    Chaps, I've a funny feeling something could not be cricket here! I'm only going off the The History of the Lancashire Fusiliers 39-45 by
    John Hallam. I've checked Chapter 9, pages 82 through till 93. Cassino and the Liri Valley ( The 2nd Battalion) & there is no mention of Major P.J. Mulqueen. I've even had a butchers at the Appendix & the Index pages but no joy..

    Frank, I did clock a name.. Capt. F. Majdalany, 2 LF who was awarded the MC.. Would this be the same chap who wrote the book,
    CASSINO PORTRAIT OF A BATTLE? He does mention that he fought in North Africa, Sicily and Italy in the rear sleeve of the book.
    Another point, I'm finding it some what strange that a Major has not got a gong that they normally get ( & I'm not taking the rise out of Officers here). I'm thinking the diaries are required.. Just to add, the only other battalion was the 11 LF that fought in Italy.
