I am interested in any photos of any/all No5 Commando graves in Diego-Suarez War Cemetery, Madagascar.
No5 Cdo were part of the successful invasion of Madagascar (Operation Ironclad) and I have the names of 5 members of the Commando that fell and were buried in Madagascar.
Interestingly, all the names are either from South Lancs Regt or East Lancs Regt and I can only suppose that these guys were attached to No5 Cdo for the operation.
Sgt Blakemore, S Lancs Regt,
Pte Cooke, E Lancs Regt,
Pte Hulmes, E Lancs Regt,
Cpl Ormesher, East Lancs Regt,
Pte Wright, S Lancs Regt.
