Black Cat regiment WW2
« on: Friday 01 November 13 15:31 GMT (UK) »
Hi Jane
 l have been looking for information on the ww2  black cat regiment .
 my father David Stansby was in this regiment, have drawn a blank in searching for information all l know is he was in italy .
he saw action he did not talk much about any of this. l have a picture of him in the barracks in italy dressed in khakis  shorts and shirt.
 l did see this uniform when l was in my teens and the distinctive black cat on it .
kind regards Brian Stansby

Hi Brian

Welcome to Rootschat  ;D

You may have posted your request in the wrong place.

We have a special board for WW2, would you like me to move this there?

Hi Brian,
I think my query about the Black Cat regiment was over on the WWII board but some time ago.  I did manage to trace the regiments movements by doing Google searches.  I'll go & check out my original posting & maybe 'meet' you over on the WWII board if Dawn moves your posting,

Brian, if you Google, '56th division WWII', you'll get a lot of information!
