  • Reginald Thorne was my father. I have his War Medals and his original service pay book. I have his details including DOB and DOD. After the war he returned to his home town where he married my mother and had 2 children - myself and my brother Trevor. He lived in Eltham all his life until his death on 5 November 1980.
