Hi
Please excuse me but I'm new to this I would like to find out if Roy Herbert has any living relatives or existing family.
Roy was my uncle, my father Raymond Herbert was his brother they came from a big family in Blaina, Gwent South Wales. My father served in the war with the Royal Artillery. I would appreciate any information about Roy if he has any family.
Roy served with 3 commando army number 3384201 and 287391. Died 8th June 1944

Hi John M

Many thanks for your information I was aware of this information having visited CVA and looked at that page and that told me a few things I did'nt know about Roy.
I was hoping maybe somebody in the veterans could tell me if there was any existing family I knew he was married because my father had a photo of him and his wife.
Many thanks for your info

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission list his family at the time of his death https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/2342883/herbert,-roy-george/

Son of David and Alice Herbert; husband of Janet Craig Herbert, of Plymouth.


I hope someone will find your post on here who can help you. Sadly with the passage of time most of those that would have known him and perhaps remained in contact with his Family post war are now deceased. The original Commando Association itself stood down in 2005. A new Association was later formed. Have you tried family research sites such as Ancestry ?

If you have any photos or additional information about your Uncle please feel free to post them on here. If you have any difficulties let me know and I will assist you.

Pete Rogers, son of LSgt Joe Rogers MM & nephew of TSM Ken McAllister. Both No2 Commando.

Yes indeed and we have had photos of him in our gallery for many years. The book publishers were very approachable when I contacted them about photos. He is identified in quite a few images in our gallery. I was asking if his nephew had any others he might wish to post.

Here are just a few from the Gallery.
