My trip to the War and Peace Show and subsquently showing my Father-in-law the pics prompted him to rummage through his picture albums to show me pics from his National Service in the late 50's when he was a Centurion driver in the Royal Tank Regiment. But with those pics he pulled out these official war photos from Sicilly, he can't quite remember how he got hold of them but says he had a friend in Fleet Street who gave them to him, there is captions on the back with on a couple of them which I've typed alongside the relevent photos. Street scene in Catania after the occupation of the town by the 8th Army troops: 78th Division take Centuripe. The Sicilian town of Centuripe, north west of Catania, fell to the men of the 78th Division after two days of heavy fighting. The town had a good strategic position at the top of a mountain and was desperately defended. Photo show. 'Mopping up' in the town of Centuripe.
