I've received a request from a friend to try and find out any information on her husbands father. His name was George Price, he joined the commandos from the Cheshires, was born in Liverpool in 1916 and had the nickname 'Kitner'. He was present on D-Day.

Unfortunately my friend does not know which Commando he was in, but would appreciate any leads. Thank you.

Phil,

Welcome to the CVA forum.

I have the details of a George Price, formerly Cheshire Regt, however he was killed in Normandy.

4127619 L/Sgt Price George Cheshire Regt No 6 Cdo KIA Normandy 10.6.44

Hope this is of use and good luck with your research.

Regards

Geoff

Thank you for looking him up Geoff. It is a different George Price as 'our' George survived the war. We'll keep looking.

(By the way, I'm not really new here. I posted some of my research on No.4's Op. Abercrombie a couple of years ago. That raid was 71 years ago this evening, quite a thought when I spent all day working at the Drop Redoubt fort in Dover today, their base prior to the raid).

Hi Phil,

Just to clarify, can you find our your George Price's parents' names and where they lived?

Cheers,
Nick
