My 3rd cousin 1x removed.
John joined up in 1936 and served in Palestine until 1939 in the Leciestershire Regt.
He was taken Prisoner of War in Crete in 1941 and was in Stalag IV B Mühlberg, Elbe, Brandenburg. He later ended in in a camp near Belsen. After the war he continued his service with the Leicesters becoming a Warrant officer.
His first wife Ethel was in the ATS. Interestingly, his second wife Joan was at Bletchley Park. She was a civilian there due to her Maths skills.
His son served 24 years, many of them with the SAS, doing over 400 parachute jumps.
