Argenta Gap war cemetery
« on: Friday 14 August 15 15:58 BST (UK) »
My late aunts fiance was killed  18 April 1945 in Italy and is buried at Argenta gap war cemetery. He was in the Coldstream Guards. I read a little today about the Battle of Argenta Gap and there is a mention of the 24th Guards Brigade.  Can anyone tell me if this refers to the Coldstream Guards.  Thank you.

If it is of interest, BritishWargraves.co.uk would be able to provide you with a photo of the grave headstone.

It is with great difficulty I share with you that in the early hours of 07 August 2021, Maximilian passed away unexpectedly but peacefully.

With deep sadness,
