Dear reader, For an illustrated book on the memoirs of Don Gillate I am looking for any material I can use as illustrations. Don was a Rifleman (later Corporal) in 13 (scout) Platoon, H Company, 8th Batallion the Rifle Brigade, part of 29th Armoured Brigade in the 11th Armoured Division. I am looking for any material I can use as illustrations in the book. From June 13th, 1944 to May 8th, 1945, Don Gillate served in France, Belgium, Holland and Germany. He took part in operations Epsom (on Hill 112), Goodwood (Grentheville, Bras and Hubert-Folie), Bluecoat (Perrier Ridge), the nightly dash to Amiens, the liberation of Antwerp, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Only once, in April ´45, did he get two weeks leave (so he "missed" Bergen Belsen). In his platoon he was one of only a few who did not get killed or wounded. Don passed away in 2009 and left 12 hours of tape regarding his experiences in 1944 and 1945. The material I am looking for could be (contemporary) photo's, drawings (I know one member of the platoon, Norman Vicary, did a sketch book during the war), maps, any other printed matter, or in fact anything you might feel that would be nice to include. Apart from this I am also looking for any information on any of the men shown in the 13 Platoon photo (taken in May 1944) I have attached, or photo's or information on any other members of the platoon (also later reinforcements). One of them being Soloman ("Russia") Rodkoff, who was killed on Hill 112 but is not in the picture. Perhaps he was on leave when it was taken? Here is a summary of all platoon members that I know of (those marked with "*" are shown on the photo: Barnes*, T.J. (Tom, “Binnie”); Beaumont*, Cpl. D.; Berry, Rfn. G.; Birleson*, Cpl. W. (Bill); Boast*, Cpl. H. (Harold); Bossom*, Rfn. N.M.; Bowden*, Sgt. W.; Braine*, Rfn. G.S.; Brown*, Rfn. …; Buttress*, Rfn. P.H.; Cave*, Rfn. H.; Connelly*, Sgt. R. (Dickey); Crisp*, Rfn. H.

R.W.; Vicary*, W.J, (Norman); Wessel*, L/Cpl. …; Williams*, Rfn. …; Wilson*, Rfn. …; Wright*, Rfn. V. For your information: I already do posess relevant literature such as Taurus Persuant and the H Company War Diary published just after the war and I have gone through sources such as the IWGC-site. Any suggestions on further sources however are still most welcome! And if anyone knows where to find a copy of the 8RB E Company War Diary that would also be very nice. Looking forward to any replies. Kind regards, Ronald.
