1st Regiment 1944-45 route question
« on: July 04, 2019, 11:42:28 AM »
Hi there,

I am hoping to take my father on a trip to follow in my grandfathers WW2 footsteps. He was in the 1st Manchester Regiment and landed on Sword Beach in 1944 shortly after D Day, and was discharged after the war ended,  in Hamburg on 6th December 1945, we think he was around Caern and then Antwerp and Aarchen.  We believe it was a mortar platoon.

Lt Leslie Barron, 304982, b 8.6.17 - d Oct 1993.

If anyone can help with more details of his units movements, I would really appreciate it.

Many thanks,
