next week I will be interviewing a WW2 veteran who won the MC in North Africa. I need the 564 Field Company RE 5 Corps war diary covering landing in Algeria to Taranto all the way up to Austria.
I already have Packenham’s volume IX History of Corps of Royal Engineers, but I really need volume VIII covering North Africa.
I only found out this veteran was alive last week and he has never recorded his experiences before. Any help with the war diary and Packenham?
Please can anyone help?
I would really appreciate this so I can construct the right questions.
It is ultimately for an exhibition to be held next year. I have been carrying out a project researching former alumni of Emanuel School In Battersea in both world wars. I have done this in a voluntary capacity so very much rely on others interested in this magnificent generation who sacrificed so much.
Thank you in advance.
