I would appreciate any info on Harry Weeks or just about his unit, no 2 or no 247 motorboat company.Thanks in hope and anticipation I am desperately trying to trace my Grandfather, David Vaughan who died in the Second World War aged 27.He was also a great bandsman and may have played in an army band I would be very greateful for any information anyone can give me.My Dad, Private Robert Lional Mead, served with the Royal Army Service Corps. I am trying to find some information on him as our family has so little.His only son died in 1993 and his only daughter, my mum is unable to recall any memories due to his death when she was only 9 years old My father served in WW1 having falsified his age to join up. They holed up in a barn for a few days but was captured by the Germans and ended up in Stalag XXB.From what I can find out this was the only camp in that area,but I distinctly remember my Mother addressing letters' Nr Konigsburg'.He said very little about his experiences, but he told us he was on the' Long March' he owed his life to a german soldier who dug up vegetables from the fields. My grandad, John Dukes, passed away a couple of years ago, and I am trying to find out anything I can about him.I'm just getting around to doing my family history! He was called up for duty as a baker on the 25th of April 1941, and he was demobed on the 19th of June 1946. I'm writing on behalf of my grandad, Bernard Lyde, who has just celebrated his 91st birthday.
Please email me if you have any further information. I discovered some pictures and info in my Gran's bits and peices about two of her brothers who were killed in WW2.
Access our library My paternal grandfather Corporal Charles Henry Francis Galliers, RASC "C" section, 14th reserve MT coy, middle east forces in 1941 was in the POW Camp PG78 in Italy after 1942 (not sure of dates) and then stalag IVB during spring 1944 (I have a letter sent home with april 1944 on it).
He died 3 years ago, the only memories he told were of being starving hungry in the Italian camp and chewing boot leather to stave off hunger and when a donkey was brought into camp pulling a cart it didn't live to leave! I have some photos with a couple of other POWs names on the back - Geoff Galloway and George Frick (?
He spent the war in N Africa and Italy before being demobbed in January 1946.
Gramp is especially keen to make contact with his mate, Bob Lee, or his family.
