I've been looking at a thread devoted to Salerno and fatal casualty Captain F S Smith, commissioned DLI, died 22/9/43 serving with 5th Bn Sherwood Foresters after transfer from 16 DLI. Waldron West War Artist One of the DLI officers associated with him by the original poster was Lt F W Crane. Having established Crane's identity, it occurred to me that maybe he and the several other DLI officers and men like him, who ended up with other units in Italy and were subsequently honoured for their gallantry, should have a thread of their own. So here's a start: Crane, Lt Kenneth William Raphael, 269441, DLI. Commissioned DLI, EC, 2/4/43. Transferred from 16 DLI to 5th For, 16/9/43. Reported wounded, Italy, date not reported, circa 12/43, bn not specified. Previously reported wounded, date not reported, now reported dangerously ill, 16/12/43. Corrected: wounded date should read 3/12/43. Awarded Soviet award, LG 11/4/44, Medal for Distinguished Battle Service, LG Supplement dated Fri 7/4/44. Then serving with 5th Bn Sherwood Foresters. Award listed in The History of 46 Division.
