    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Re Daniel Regan.

    My father's Uncle was Alfred Shingler and Served With Danny. We are told that they were also best friends. Fitting that they are buried only a few graces apart. I understand my relatives spoke with your relatives in the past.

    I visited the grave's in 2013 and placed flowers on both Alfred and Danny graves. I also have photographs if you would like me to share.

    My parents and sister have more information, I just stumbled upon this whilst researching the battle.

    Regards

    Paul

    This was the infamous Bande massacre where a sonderkommando from the SD murdered 34 local young men by shooting them in the back of the head as they were forced to go down some steps into a cellar . This was in revenge for resistance activity in Sept 1944 and was first discovered by elements of the 1st Canadian Parachute Bn and then 9 Para under Lt Col Napier Crookenden , who arranged the recovery of the bodies and their burial following a funeral . A Memorial stands next to the cellar where the massacre occured.
