Hi i am a ww2 researcher looking for information on 4 Commando and in paticular no 1 section B sub can anyone please tell me what action they would of seen please i am also interested in a L/cpl Mantripp as i have a document which mentions him and really want to learn more please
We have a document that mentions him as well. His name can be found our Nominal Rolls albums in the Notebook of Sgt Reg Palmer listing the names of the troop and provided to the CVA by Sgt. Palmer's son. Is this the document you refer to as it also splits down to Sections and Sub Sections ?
Is your research on behalf of the family of L/Cpl. Mantripp. If so please put them in touch with us direct
Pete Rogers, son of LSgt Joe Rogers MM & nephew of TSM Ken McAllister. Both No2 Cdo. God and the Soldier, all men adore, In time of danger and not before. When the danger is passed and all things righted, God is forgotten, and the Soldier slighted.
