Please can anyone help to explain my Granddads service record. He started in the Royal West Kent Regiment & then went into the 2nd Battalion the Parachute Regiment. We do think he was on a troop ship that was sunk on route to North Africa as he once told my Aunt in December 1942. We do know as a Para he was wounded on 28th March 1943 in Tunisia which I think from information on Para data would have been as part of Operation Torch during the Battle of Cork Wood, we then presume this left him unfit for the Parachute Regiment & he was returned to the Royal West Kents. We know he served in Italy as we have a couple of photos of him in Siena. Any help in explaining his service record would be fantastic as would any information concerning his time in Tunisia & also where the Royal West Regiment were & what they were doing in 1944/45 in various cities in Italy. I do hope to go to research this further at Duxford & also at the RWK museum in Maidenhead later this year but a head start would be much appreciated. I would eventually then like to visit some of the battlefield locations & places he would have seen during his service.
