Pte. Walter Grant

British Army Royal Army Ordnance Corps


My father, Pte. Walter Grant, served in the RAOC and was in Stalag XXA and XXB. He came from Sheffield.

Pte. Eric Tuckerman, who was in RASC, was also in Stalag XXB and became very goods pals with my father. When my father married my mother, Stella Arber from Sheffield on 29th December, 1945, Eric was my father's best man. Later, when my father died in 1975, Eric courted my mother and they were married in May 1977. Sadly, Eric died in 1996 and my mother died on Christmas morning 2002. I have put on my webpage a group photograph of Walter, fifth from the right on the top row and Eric fourth from the right on the middle row, when they were in Stalag XXB. There is also a group photograph of Walter second from right middle row when he was in Stalag XXA as well. webpage:
