Thanks for posting.
Just found this thread about the 53rd Regt., Recce Corps, RAC which is the unit of my great uncle, Wilfred James Hall of Cwmbran, the first chap in the H section. Looking for information/photos of the unit and hopefully of him too or a point in the right direction would be good, if possible.

Welcome to the forum, great to have another Recce on board. Might I suggest you post a separate post on your great uncle in the Recce section.
Cheers both for that, appreciate the input, think I will take your suggestion up in the very near future, will get all the things I know about him together first and see what I'll post up.

Hi I do yes sorry I had been typing up a lot of obituaries yesterday for Privates
Lance Corporal Raymond R Howorth (Unknown-1944) -...
There are also images of his headstone, medals and newspaper cuttings of the time on the link
If you need a better headstone photo I have friends who live in Valkenswaard
I have all the war graves in the Valkenswaard War Cemetery on file (and I visit them frequently) I just am not computer able enough to post the picture of the tombstone here. But if you wish, I can email it.
Put up a RECCE man (Lieutenant Markwell) today on our facebook page.
