Sgt. Thomas Fisher Churchill .     British Army 9th Btn. Cameronians   from Burnside, Glasgow)

(d.26th June 1944)

Sgt Thomas F Churchill, died 26th June 1944 - I have just returned from holidaying in Normandy, France where I was able to locate my uncle who was killed on 26th June 1944.

He lies in peace at the British War Cemetry in Bayeux. He was 22 years old and with him lie two other soldiers from the same Regiment who also died on the same day, one of the soldiers is 'known only unto God.' I would like to find out more about the circumstances that lead to his death if possible. I'm curious that three soldiers who lie together, having died on the same day, possibly were fighting together when they met their demise. I know nothing of how he came to be there and with his brothers and sister also now gone,there is no-one I can ask. If anyone recognises my uncle's name, I would love to hear from you. He was only one of many who lost his life but also, too young to die. Kind Regards

Jozef Ciesielski .       from Poland)

My husband's grandfather is Jozef Ciesielski. He was captured by German forces while defending Poland on March 17, 1939. He was interred in Stallag XXA and Stallag VIG. His numbers were 2426. In May 1941 he was transferred from one to the other, but in what order I am unsure. Joe passed away in 1996 and never really talked about his experience. In doing genealogy work on my husband's family, I have been very interested in trying to keeping Joe's memory alive for being one of the survivors.

Gladys Florence "Laddie" Citron .     Land Army

My Mother was a member of this very important task force and I would like to contact anyone who might have known her during this time.

Her name was Gladys Florence Citron, known as 'Laddie'. She also had a particular friend, also in the Land Army, called 'Laddie' too. My Mother was a Londoner, had a sister called Beatrice Emily Citron. I do not think her sister was in this organisation. During her time in the Land Army she was based at Swift's, a very large farm in Much Hadham in Herts. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Gladys Florence "Laddie" Citron .     Womens Land Army   from 7 Mildmay Road, Islington. London )

I am seeking any information on my Mother, Gladys Florence Citron, who was a member of the Women's Land Army during World War 2. I believe she was working in a village called Much Hadham, Herts. When Mum was alive she said she worked on the farm owned by Swift's, not sure if this was connected to Swift's corned beef people. She was very friendly with another lady named 'Gladys' and this is why Mum was nicknamed 'Laddie' I have one very old, small photo of a crowd of ladies during that time.

My Dad William Clague was Killed in action on the 30th May 1943 (over Wuppatal) For the first time I have been able to visit his grave in Rheinberg Cemetry, Germany. Grave no. 9 C 18.

He flew with 460Sq(RAAF) from RAF Binbrook I have been trying to find out more about the crew he flew with. I met Margaret Russell, widow of the Pilot. T. P Russell and also met the two crew members (who were taken PoW) when they returned to U.K prior to demob. As I was only 8 years old then I have vague memories. I would like to make contact with anyone knowing of any crew members or descendants. The PoW's names are George Andrew Kirk, 409057, born 1/2/1921 in Malvern, Victoria discharged 13/5/1946.

Sydney Clare .     British Army   from Hull)

My grandfather was called Sydney Clare, from Hull. He was captured at Dunkirk and then spent the rest of the war in a POW camp in Poland. I am not sure which one. His youngest daughter was named Valerie as she was born after he was captured - I think it may have been the name of where he was captured but could be wrong. He was possibly in the Royal Armoured Corps. I know that he too was forced marched to Germany towards the end of the war. He did not talk about it much so I have such sketchy information. I only remember him saying that he saw 'Jews walking past the fence' (although I was very young when he said this and may have misunderstood). Where any of the POW camps near to concentration camps? The only other thing my late father told me was that Sydney was ashamed of having to 'work for the Germans' growing food. I know so little about him and now it is too late as he died several years ago.

Cpl. Albert Arthur "Nobby" Clark .     British Army Royal Army Service Corps   from Aldershot)

My dad, Albert Clark, Nobby, died 15 years ago and is only now I relise how little I know or knew about him and am keen to find out more. If anyone has details of him or his war time history, in particular, the time he spent as a Army Prisoner of War in Görlitz, Saxony. He worked in the NAFFI all his life so I am not sure if that continued during his war time sevice. I have many pictures of the camp with other prisoners some are signed but I have no idea who these people are.

Mary Hooker



Albert Edward Clark .     British Army Middlesex Regiment

My father, Albert Edward Clark, joined the forces in August or September 1939. From what limited information we have, I understand he was sent to Palestine in 1944 from Egypt, then back to Egypt in 1946. The only other thing I know about his service is before he was sent to Palestine he was part of something or a unit known to me only as 'R.C.O. Sigs.' Perhaps it was his job. If anyone out there has any information on Albert Edward Clark, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you. Thank you.

Robert Clark
