    Hi Mate and a belated welcome to the forum.

    Sapper J T Young :poppy:


    I'm struggling to find 'Christy' or 'Christie' killed in 1994 in the Royal Engineers.

    Anything you can add to help narrow down the search for him?

    Looking forward to see in the pictures.

    Thanks Andy, that's good of you mate.
    All we know is that they used to call him "CORPORAL CHRISTY."
    You could be right, it was probabily a nickname. Dad said this chap was always looking for "souveners! and they all used to warn him not to....he wouldn't listen.

    All the men liste dabove are Sappers except one who is a Lieutenant. That said one of the could have been a acting Corporal.

    Wright is a Corporal but no obvious connection to 'Christie'. The unit appears not to have suffered many casualties so he may get a mention in the units war diary.
