    Hello, I am searching for any information about Padre Ian Macaulay of the 1st Fife and Forfar Regiment who was killed on October 25 or 26, 1944, in Holland. There is very, very little about his death, or what he was doing when he died. I am aware that Crocodiles of the 1st FFY were attached to the Canadian Army both for closing the Breskens Pocket in mid October, and in clearing the area between Bergen-op-zoop and Eindhoven at the time Padre Macaulay was killed. I have discovered that 2 Crocodiles of the 1st FFY were destroyed in "hulk alley" in the woods near Bergen-op-zoom, Holland, but it is not clear if Padre Macaulay was there when they were destroyed. Any information anyone might have (beyond what is on the CWGC website) would be gratefully appreciated! Best Regards, Tom

    Hi Ken,
    Please see attached list of names, with a J King listed.
    Unfortunately I have not got the photo.
    Reading the diaries of that time in other threads will let you know a bit more.
    My grandfather, also listed was J Truscott.
