    Thank you Owen for the info, that is a shame to hear about Tom, I'm sure he had some fantastic stories to tell.

    Just spotted this thread and am pleased that you put things to right !

    I was indeed one of the lucky one's and escaped being wounded although I did have a spell in hospital whilst at Cassino.

    Best regards

    Ron

    You ask:
    Mr. Goldstein, did you participate in the battle at Monte Cassino?

    Very much so, I'm afraid and it was a miserable time !

    I wrote about it here: BBC - WW2 People's War - Monte Cassino, March to May 1944
    and here: BBC - WW2 People's War - Return to Cassino

    If you are not very well read up on the various stages of the battle battle then GOOGLE 78 Div Cassino, or alternatively GOOGLE Ron Goldstein Cassino BBC WW2talk

    I doubt that you will find a single ww2 veteran that has a good word to say about Cassino !

    Ron

    Ron, my apologies for getting things confused about you being in the hospital at Cassino and appreciate Owen getting it straight. as to all of this. I am certainly glad you survived Monte Cassino! Reading about it is gruesome enough for me.

    Monte Cassino was another location of death, destruction, and misery, ironically at a Catholic Monastery. Not to mention the mud, and terrain, not pleasant. Thank you Mr. Goldstein, you are the first veteran of Monte Cassino I have met, it's a true honor sir.
