    GUNNER WILLIAM MARTIN DCM

    [​IMG]

    Gunner William Martin DCM served in 367 Battery, 140th Field Regiment during 1939-40 as Driver to Major E.A. Milton. He was captured with Major Milton during the Breakout from Cassel on 30th May 1940, his small group having been surrounded by German tanks. I have posted his full story, including his incredible escape from captivity, on the 140 Regiment website 367 Battery- ‘The Ones Who Got Away’ – 140th (5th London) Army Field Regiment, Royal Artillery

    Post Dunkirk, William Martin transferred to the 50th Mechanical Equipment Company, Royal Engineers.His new Regiment was involved in the D-Day landings and, sadly, on the 8th June 1944, he was killed on the Sword beach in Normandy, at the age of 26 years. He is buried in a CW at St Andrews Churchyard, Aveton-Gifford, near to his home in Devon.

    During the 2004 anniversary celebrations/reminiscences of WW2 I took my father to the Netherlands. The War Museum at Groesbeek had then a room full of information which included a record of all the places where any soldier was laid to rest post D-Day. Well worth a visit if you have interest in the Divisions that served there. My father was quickly able to find his own unit and the relevant names he recognised in the 6th Field Regiment
