Apologies for interrupting this thread, but I'm not sure how to start a new one! I'm trying to find out a little bit more about my father, Lt Gerald Shires, who was awarded the MC on the night of 23/24 March '45. He was in 276 Field Coy, Royal Engineers, attached to 153 Bde, 51st Highland Div, as they crossed the Rhine near Rees. I have the citation from the National Archives, posted below. I never really had the chance to ask my father about it, as he died way back in 1974. I know he was also in Normandy and the Ardennes, and he ended up in Germany involved in post war reconstruction (although he told me his main claim to fame was managing the company football team). Just looking for a steer as to where I can find a little more information and context - would it be through the Royal Engineers or the Highland Division? I've also posted a similar request on the Rhine Crossing thread.
