|My brother-in-law, Sgt C. J. Hunter,R.M., (deceased), received the Conspicuous Gallanntry Medal for action on the Normandy beaches on D Day. A description is contained on pages 111 and 112 of Lockharts book, "The Marines Were There". |
Jack was married to my sister, who is also deceased, and I believe that I am his only 'living' relative, if only 'in-law'.
I immigrated to Canada almost 50 years ago, and subsequently served in the Canadian Army. I have tried, without success, to ascertain the regiment of the troops on the beach, and also that of the Sherman tank.
If anyone can shed any light on my queries, I would most certainly appreciate it.
