Can anyone help with this enquiry? You probably need to be in your 80's!  The F&C has entries for him in 1952 as 2nd Lt in B Sqn and then at ERE with HQ 6th Armoured Div 1953/54.

I found a memorial to this man in St John the Baptist Church Bishopstone near Salisbury. He died in 1955 as Lt in 3rd Carabiniers.

I wonder if you could shed any light on his life and death?

Many thanks

John Nelson

I'm afraid I cannot assist with any info, but poor guy certainly must have died young, maybe an accident ? Either way, Rest In Peace old comrade, & I hope someone, somewhere can shed some light on the life & times of one of our own. John (JKW)
