The family are researching the war record of Joe Chamberlain who served in the Raiding Forces from 1940. He made a written record of his service in 1997 which we have just uncovered. This website is a wonderful find!
I've just found out that my mother's cousin was attached to the RSR. Gunner Nelson David Richardson was killed on 29th July 1944 aged 24. Service no 6344507 Other than that, we know little about him. His younger brother is 85 and may have some photos etc. I will submit anything I find. Fascinating website. Thank you.
What a fantastic Website. My Grandfather , Alfred Roach, served with the RSR for the entirety of is existence , in A Battery and HQ. I've been researching his service for 20+ years . This is a fine tribute to a very overlooked unit. I'll reach out through the contacts re pictures I have
Fantastic Website And salute to the Author Marco I was engrossed long may it continue to improve . Well done Sir Graham Thomson
Thank you so much Marco. As you know my Dad was RSR and I have so little of his. This is very special to me.
Many thanks Marco for the fine tribute you are building to these fine brave men. Excellent research, thanks for sharing.
Congratulations on developing the website for this obscure Allied Special Forces unit of WWII. It will be most interesting to see the information that develops over the coming years. I'll be happy to contribute where I can.
Hi Marco, This is a great site - well done. My Grandfather served in 10 Troop and took part in around 10 operations. I'll be in touch. Simon.
A superb tribute to this fine unit and its men
Marco, what a good thing you have done. well done indeed. This website will grow and grow and making everything public is so good; what is not shared is lost forever. Thank you.
