My father Ian Kinniburgh was a British Royal Marine Commando and was involved in D Day. He passed away just over 23 years ago. If anyone knows anything about his time in the service I would greatly appreciate. I believe he was made a captain in the field but he was only 19. He did not tell us a lot about his experience but we visited The D Day museum in Normandy and the beaches in the year 2000. Best wishes.

My Grandfather, Edward G Cousins (known as George) was killed around 1500 hrs on 11 July 1944 during Operation Jupiter, in the vicinity of Fontaine Etoupefour. He was a Gunner with H Troop, 130 Battery, 86 (5 Battalion, The Devonshire Regiment) Anti-Tank Regiment, Royal Artillery. He died when his Troop HQ was shelled, killing him and two other men (Gunners Goddard & Doel). I’d like to hear from anyone who may have known him or can provide any information which may help me pin-point his whereabouts when he died. Thank you.

I am the son of Royal Artillery Gunner Arthur John Walter Spavins and would like to know if anyone served alongside him, or if there is anyone that could answer some questions I have. I attended the D-Day70 commemorations but, in a way, it raised more questions than it answered. Thank You and respect to one and all involved.
