I attach a photograph of my uncle - Ivor George Parkin - kia 2 April 1945.
He was a membr of 9 Commando and is interred in Coriano Ridge Cemetery, Italy.
I have telegrams and letters that were sent to my grandparents informing them of his passing and the circumstances.
Also letters from him to my father (his brother) and my grandmother (his mum).
If these might been of interest, I am happy to attach those or transcripts of, where the originals are faded.
Please advise.
Kind regards ... Linda Haysom (nee Parkin)

Hi Linda

Thank you for the photo of your Uncle and the offer of additional documents. I have updated our ROH page for Gunner Parkin and also added the image to the No.9 Commando Gallery. Below are links to each entry. In the gallery the photo will enlarge if clicked on.

At the bottom of this message below my name you will see an email button. As you have a few documents it may be better to send them as attachments to me. If any transcripts are needed I will advise you.
