Many thanks Drew, I need to get down to look at the war diaries...am currently waiting for Dad's service records to arrive.
Well many thanks guys...I guess his army records would point me to the right landing area/beach, as would the unit diary which I will certainly...
Wow thanks for the reference Owen...that's great!
Hi thingimbob and owen
Yes he was British not Canadian...Juno Beach? Mmmmm interesting...were there British soldiers landing at Juno?
Just looked again at his Pay Book and it says he was in 1 Veh Park 16 Veh Coy RAOC
Haven't yet sent for his records but am going to.
Well, Dad's name was Stanley Booth and he was a driver first class in RAOC
does that help?
My name is Mike and I have just joined - another newbie! Looking forward to getting stuck in to the forums and learning from some...
