My grandad signed up for the Buffs Royal East Kent Regiment: 26.7.1940 and served until 01.10.1946. He was a Private in the Infantry.
He served in the North Africa Campaign and the Burma campaign. He never really spoke much about the war. I know he was in the desert (though I don’t know where) and also the jungles of Burma.
My grandad was awarded the 1939-1945 Star, The Africa Star (with 8th Army clasp), The Burma Star, The Defence Medal and the War Medal 1939-1945.
Looks like he managed to find a bottle shop! Does anybody recognise the writing in the window? I’d love to know where he was:
