Cannon Company 315th Regiment 79th Division WW2 Veterans
« on: Tuesday 11 June 24 03:14 BST (UK) »
My cousin owns his own WW2 museum (Grant WW2 Museum, Nuneaton, England) with everything he has collected from metal detecting and various items he has bought. One of the main items he owns is a big Nazi Flag that was taken by the Cannon Company 315th Regiment 79th Division when they liberated a German village. What's special about this flag is that the company had all signed the flag with their names and addresses.

My cousin would like to find pictures of these veterans to match the names on the flag. We have found some pictures already but still a lot more to go. I will make a list of the people we are looking for, however, some names are unreadable and any information relating to the company would be appreciated.
Harrison/Sinclair - Kilsyth
Goldie - Edinburgh
MacDonald - Kirkintilloch
McGlinn/Paton/Gall/Hutton/Webster - Dundee

Perhaps their Facebook group could help: https://www.facebook.com/315thinfantryregimentwwii/

A reunion is scheduled for October (see flyer.) Try contacting the organizers of that, too.

Thanks for the suggestion, my cousin is already part of that Facebook page and I have already given him the emails of the organisers.

I'm just hoping that a relative or something might stumble upon this post that may have pictures of one of the veterans.
