Hello Geoff. Yes I have fully researched my Dad's battalion in the Sherwood Forester's.Among other info I obtained the unit war diary for the last several months of that war. The passage over the canal was hair raising. He was given a DZ discharge and then send as part of the Occupation Force in the Ruhr. Times were tough when he finally got out. Went to sea in the Merchant Marine: Imperial Oil Tankers to South America among others.Then joined the RNVR and sailed in HMS Furious as an Artificer from 1928-32. Managed to find all those records.He was a wonderful Father and an inspiration to me. My family is originally from Barrow.My Dad did his time in Vickers.We moved to Morecambe in the mid-30`s. I went to Lancaster Royal Grammar School following behind my late brother Jim. I still have a ton of Jefferson(my Mum`s maiden name)¸relatives in Barrow¨. I spent my career under the seal of the Official Secrets Act. That is it Geoff. All the best to you and yours. Owen
