Reginald Fisher

Royal Marines Engineers


Just before my father, Reginald Fisher's death I made some notes of his earlier years. He served at Scapa Flow, Orkney Islands and Fort William Scotland then returned to Deal in Kent before going out to North Africa (Algiers). In Italy he landed in Salerno. He blew himself up by lighting a fire making tea in a hole and was taken to US hospital for a few months. Had a great time in US hospital (loads of supplies sacks of tea sugar and milk) He then undertook all types of engineering jobs in Italy. He came back to Liverpool (Birkenhead) for more training in Gasometer tank construction and was going to Burma, but was half way there when war was declared over (due to the atom bomb). They stopped in India and he worked for Indian government then received his release dates. He came back to Plymouth and was Demobbed 12/3/46 (Lovely feeling with the suit and £84 in his pocket) he got a train back to Dover and returned to the plumbing trade.
