I?m looking for information on Anthony ?Tony? Burke who served the Commandos in WW2.

Tony was my great uncle who alway sent us a Christmas card from the commandos. He suffered a significant leg injury during the war, needed a leg brace for the rest of his life. But a great man.

Any information gratefully received.

Hi Laurence,

Did your great uncle, Anthony Burke, have a middle name? And whereabouts did he live?
