Hi

I have the letters of my great Uncle who have addresses on them of the RAMC BHA7.  I know he was in the Middle East forces and also Italy.  Sadly he was killed in Italy at the Battle of Casino.  He also worked at the POW camp 306. 

I would love to see a copy of the diary as it may have conections at some time with my Uncle.  His name was William Emery known as Bill.

Regards

Stef Parry

One suggestion to anyone who has war diaries and other documents. The Imperial War Museum would almost certainly be grateful for originals (which would then be very safely archived), transcripts or copies. My father's papers are deposited there, from a rather less adventurous service (Home Guard in Mitcham and Oldham), and I know they've been used by at least one researcher.

Hi Stef

Do you know that although he is buried in Cassino he didn't die in the battle there? The battalion war diary would suggest, although he's not mentioned by name, he was killed by enemy artillery fire during the battalions battle for Gari River.

Cheers
Andy

I would be very interested in this information, as my grandfather, JR Arno, traveled all over Italy and Sicily during WWII as a CAPT in the RAMC.  He died in November 1946 in Trieste.
