WWII Field Artillery - Heron David
« on: Thursday 25 April 19 22:21 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

Been a long time since my last post. Don't really know if this is the right place to post, but i want to find out more about my grt (1x) uncle who was posted here in the UK during WWII. The only info i have is this snip from an local mag archive in Wisconsin. Any pointers/suggestions would be most appreciated. Thank you.

I'd suggest your first port of call should be the US National Archives for his record https://www.archives.gov/veterans

This should tell you who exactly he served with and perhaps where they were in UK which may make a better start point.
