    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.
    Thanks again.

He was the youngest of four serving sons of Richard and Betsy Howorth 336, New Line Britannia and had been in the Army, since he was 18 years old going to France shortly after D-day before which he had worked at Hargreaves and Crowther’s Irwell Mill, Bacup and was a member of Bacup Home Guard.

    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.
