He left a story of his life in the army from 1941 to 1946, but I would like to know more.
If there is any more about him, I hope someone can help. My husband's father has recently passed away and my husband would love to know about his service record, His Name is William Henry Smallwood, and he was a Regimental Sargeant Major, and he served in Burma during WW2. Helens (which was then in Lancashire) around 1939 at the beginning of the war.
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.
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.
In late 1946 Bob was on holiday with his wife in Burton Bradstock, Dorset.
Nan & Gramp met up with them in the Dove Inn at Burton Bradstock.
He left a story of his life in the army from 1941 to 1946, but I would like to know more information if there is any. He and my Nan, Margaret, have been married for over 66 years.
