Hello.... (Please bear in mind that I have very little research or military experience My wife's father was a private in the Royal Engineers in Italy. His papers seem to show that he was a member of 212 A.T. Coy and 19th Field Squadron and that he died the day after a "Battle Accident" occurred, 18th Feb. 1944. My wife was then 3 yrs. of age so she has no memory of him. Her mother died a few years later but she does remember being told that it was said that her father had stayed in the billet instead of going for a drink and he was the only one there when a 'friendly' bomb struck the building. She has visited his grave in Bari Military Cemetery but really feels that she needs to know where he actually was when he was injured and whether the story is true. Too many died in horrible ways but please tell me if there is a chance that this death might have been different enough to warrant some details in a Unit Diary ? Thanks for your patience if you have read this far !
