PostSubject: just a coincidence   just a coincidence EmptyThu Mar 31, 2011 4:58 pm

My father was on the Normandy landings 1944, before they sailed there was a war propaganda film being made called
The Way Ahead, starring David Niven, who was the Grandson of Colonel Degacher. As they were filming on board ship
they used the troops in a background scene and filmed my father at the side of David Niven. The coincidence is my
Grandfathers brother was Pte 934 John Williams who served under Col. Degacher at sihayo's Kraal where he receaved
prize money for the capture of a considarable amount of cattle, even Lord Chelmsford was rubbing his hands for the
amount of money he was to get. John was a defender at Rorke's Drift and survived the battle only to die in atroious
weather of disease with just a blanket for protection on 5th feb 1879. His name is on the memorial at Rorke's Drift.
