Subject: My Uncle Joseph (Joe) Conlin Ultimate Sacrifice in WWII
Comments: My Uncle Joe (Joseph Conlin) was killed in the battle of
the bulge. My father and my other Uncle have limited information. He
was in the 254th Infantry Regiment. He was reported missing on Jan.
23rd, 1945 near Beblenheim we think. I was also told that he was
honored with the Bronze metal. His body was not recovered
immediately and due my Grandfather's anguish a body was returned but
my father and uncle are skeptical concerning it's authenticity. He
was a sniper and reportedly was trying to wipe out a German machine
Any help on how I can get more info would be appreciated.

Comments: I am looking for information on my Grandfather, John
"Jack" Reed, AKA Jackie Reed. I know that he was a part of the Royal
Corps of Signals - Durham Light Infantry during WWII. He was in
France in about 1942-43. I have been told that he entered Germany at
the end and was part of liberation of one of the camps.
I would also like information on a Great-Uncle, William Lawton or
Billy Lawton. He was in the Royal Air Force. All I've been told was
that his plane was shot down over Germany and he was taken prisoner
and killed while being moved to a POW camp by friendly fire, as the
Germans had dressed English soldiers in German uniforms.

Comments: Hello, My grandmother has given me the task of looking for
her late fathers WW1 medals. Unfortunately he passed away when my
grandmother was 3 and a half and she sadly has no memory of him, nor
does she have any photographs or memorabilia.
The medals are the British war medal, the 1915 Star and the Victory
medal. As you can understand these will be greatly treasured by my
grandmother and she has always wanted something of her fathers, but
sadly she has nothing.
His name was: A.C.Buckley and he was a Private in the Oxfordshire &
Buckinghamshire Light Infantry. He also served in the Esse regiment
and the Labour Corps.
His regiment numbers are as follows:
Ox & Bucks L I: 18766
Essex reg: 301970
Labour Corps: 695912
Thank you and please get in contact if you have came across these
medals or know of someone who has them. Or just for general advice
on where I can search.
