These photo's have been handed down to me from my dad, they were a WW2 'bring back'(along with some other items) of my grandad.. who served in the Royal Marines. They have been stuffed away in a tin box, pretty much since the war. The story goes that my grandad and his company were in retreat from getting a pasting in Arnhem.. he and some of his company came across a farm house with German vehicles in the courtyard, on further inspection they found dead german soliders on the ground.. when they moved in they discovered some of the solidiers had had their throats cut.. my grandad always reckoned that British special forces had come across the farm before they had.. he also said that the soldiers were a SS division.. I have know idea whether the story is true or not (I have been told that the chances of the solidiers being SS are slim).. but as a child on the few times my grandad told the story, it was special.. I saw him as a war hero, guess like every grandson should see his (vet)grandad.
Along with the photo's were a wound medal and a SS 8yr, long service medal.
