In late 1946 Bob was on holiday with his wife in Burton Bradstock, Dorset.
They lived in Glyneath, South Wales and the circumstances surrounding his death are vague. During retreat to Dunkirk, he was in ambulance with other wounded and didn't make it to the beaches.He served in the North African desert in 1941/42 in 384 Company, Royal Army Service Corps (RASC).Gramp was called up and enlisted at Sutton-on-Trent on 27 June 1940.I will send scans of the photos I have later when I have mastered the technology!My grandmother was romantically involved with Ralph Shotter, who was in the Royal Army Services Corps and has heard that he was on board the Lancastria when it sunk. Apparently he has no known grave, but his name appears on a war memorial in Dunkirk, France, which I would love to take her to see.He said very little about his experiences, but he told us he was on the' Long March' he owed his life to a german soldier who dug up vegetables from the fields. My grandad, John Dukes, passed away a couple of years ago, and I am trying to find out anything I can about him.
