    This is a little story I picked up from Goole At War, Volume 3 by Mike Marsh

    "At a time when fighting at the Dutch town of Arnhem was the focus of much attention, there was an award from Holland for a Goole man whose war duties reflected his fluency in five languages. By Royal Dutch decree, Captain Ronald W Studer was awarded the Bronze Cross. This acknowledged his service as British Liaison Office aboard a Dutch gunboat during operations in the Mediterranean. He had also received the Croix de Guerre and Silver Star for liaison duties with French forces.

    The son of Mr and Mrs W Studer, of Goole, and a former pupil of Goole Grammar School, Captain Studer joined the Royal Artillery in 1940. Before the war he worked for Lep Transport Limited, of which his father was a director."

    Can anyone add any more to this story?

    The London Gazette in November 1940 has his details as Ronald Walter STUDER (155135).
