I have just recently come across this site, and was wondering if anyone can help. I would be very interested to find out if there are any surviving members of the 16th Batt. DLI who fought in the action Sedjenane Tunisia. I am looking for any information about my uncle Pte. Valdemar Hessegar No. 4467071 who was KIA 4th March 1943, and is Commemorated at Medjez-el-Bab Memorial, believed buried as an unknown. I am also looking for any photo's of him, as the only one I have, is of him when he was about 8 yrs.old, my grandmother had a fire at her house, and she lost most of the photographs. As I am proud to have his Medals I would dearly love to get a photo of him. Thank you

I would like to hear from anyone who served with the DLI with George Williamson Keith between 1935 -1945. I am his eldest son and would like to learn more about my father as he died when in 1960, when I was 10-years of age.

My husband and I have just returned from La Havre where my Grandfather Leonard Austin Retallack lies. He died of his wounds on the 15th October 1916. My Grandmother was expecting my Mam so she never knew her Father. Sadly she died in 2005 aged 88. We went for her and it was very moving. His grave was the only one we saw bearing the badge of the D.L.I. Made us very proud as both my husband's father and my father served in the D.L.I. My grandfather was 26 years old. I hope his soul is resting in peace. I wish I had known him., Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, England, 14/06/2010

Today is the 70th Anniversary of a series of engagements in the Dunkirk Campaign in which many men from 70 Infantry Brigade (10th and 11th DLI Battalions) were killed or captured, together with the stand of 1st Tyneside Scottish - the remaining Battalion in the Brigade - (formerly 12th DLI) at Ficheux, which saw that Battalion decimated. Outgunned, and overwhelmed by superior forces, but never outmanned. Lest we forget.

I have found two medals awarded to 26092 Cpl. A.Higgins. One appears to be the peace medal the other is a star dated 1914-1915. Are there any relatives who would like these medals?.They have ribbons attached but are a bit scruffy.
