Sedgley, Harry

Harry Sedgley ex Buffs Royal East Kent Regiment, (6292840), and Royal Engineers. 

Born 23 May 1921 volunteered 20th june 1940. Had training at Tidworth , joined D-Day invasion 6th may 1944. Landed at Arromanches, amid all hell let loose. Most awkward moment of the first hour was when a shell landed a few feet from the truck i thought was providing some sort of shelter and the wall on my left half disappeared, in retaliation i ran up a hill and lobbed a grenade into a pill box where fire was coming from and decided in future to remember the good things and forget the bad - but not always possible. Then went as far as Paris before going to Belgium and later to the Middle East. Demobbed in September 1946.
