One of the few surviving members of 19th Battalion Sussex
Home Guard.

I joined the Irish Guards in 1944 and was "On Active Service"
in Germany, Egypt, and Palestine, from where I was de-

as a member of a Churchill Tank crew, fought with the Guards
Armoured Division from Normandy to Luneberg Heath, while
his friend's Battalion was sent to serve elsewhere. "Les" was
killed during the fighting in Italy.
