A group picked up local to me, though with no obvious connection to Wales. It consists of 3 letters from two men, one RAF from Egypt and the other RAMC from India, also a number of photographs, many from the jungle and Egypt and some post war of a RAF barracks and also a jet plane that the RAF man had flown in. It also contains a map from the start of WWII showing the front line in Europe. Also a poem about serving with the ARP and a montage picture of a cut down photo and a hand drawn background in a jeep. As it contains so many items I will post it in a number of posts. Firstly the photos and the map.
Posting a link to this group photo taken sometime in late 1939 to before the end of 1940. The two officers both went on to have illustrious careers with the army, with one winning the DSO and the other being mentioned in dispatches twice. http://www.historicalwarmilitariaforum.com/topic/5437-ramc-group-including-bill-anderson-dso-airlanding-and-commando-medic/#entry26066
Jerry B posted a topic in Documents, Photographs & ID'sA gift from two members on another forum who dropped it off at my house yesterday. It is a group photo of "A" Company, 207th (Welsh) Field Ambulance RAMC and has all the names of those pictured which following some research I was able to discover the commanding officer was Major W.M.E. Anderson who later was commander of 195th Airlanding field ambulance RAMC who as part of 6th Airlanding brigade, 6th Airborne division and flew into Normandy on D Day, where he was wounded but refused treatment until he had transported his wounded patients to the main dressing station, later he was involved in the battle of the bulge and then later on he was involved in operation Varsity, the crossing of the Rhine. For his actions in Normandy and in Germany he was awarded the DSO. In the post war period he was commander of 2nd medical light commando. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurice_Anderson http://www.pegasusarchive.org/varsity/war_195afa.htm http://www.paradata.org.uk/units/6th-airlanding-brigade http://www.unithistories.com/officers/Army_officers_A06.html
