Hi. Iíve only just came across this thread while searching for information on my grandfather, William Frederick Crozier and his brothers, David Alexander, Robert Samuel and John who all served in WW2. David Alexander was the youngest brother and I can confirm that his parents were Robert John and Jennie of Glenanne, Armagh.

Armagh20, I would be very interested in the newspaper article if you still have a copy of it.

Many thanks
Allister

Hi Allister
No problem I can get you a copy of the newspaper, are you in the Armagh area ? You can contact me at the Royal Irish Fusiliers museum in Armagh.
Regards
Joe

I was a fourteen year old boy when my brother George ( guardsman Thomas George Clarke) was killed in action in 1944. George was in the second armoured battalion of the the Irish guards who were leading the assault across the Dutch border on the 17 September 1944 which was intended to link up with the airborne at Arnhem. George was killed when his tank was hit and set on fire on the road to Valkenswaard. In the cemetery at Valkenswaard there are six headstones bearing the Irish Guards logo and the inscription Ďa soldier of the second world waríand the date 17 th September 1944. We believe that Georgeís remains are in one of these six graves.
Dear Allan Clarke,
