  • Hello, I am interested in finding out whether Robert Glegg Gilbert was a friend of my grand-father's, who served in 27 MG Bn in World War Two. I have a photo that I am trying to match to the person (all we know is that his first name was "Bob"), which I am happy to provide if contributors in this forum are interested in making contact.

  • Well, do you remember the helmet you wore in the second world was well, my Dad currently owns it.
    Don't worry, he is taking very good care of it :)

    Rest in peace
