It is with great sadness Eric Nichols (Nicki) passed away yesterday 26-12-14. After suffering from colon and liver cancer.
Eric was born in Cambridge on the 2nd January 1933. And joined the army when he was 17. He joined the 5th royal tank regiment in 1951. Late 51 Dad took the same 4 month journey to south / North Korea. Cold wet winter followed by hot insect filled summer and casultys of war that 18 year olds should not witness.
If anybody remembers Eric please get in contact.
Another soldier returns to his maker
I am seeking information about my late uncle Brian Peter Roach, who I believe may have been stationed with 5 RTR in Fallingbostel around 1959 / 1969. I found a photo posted by Dave Wilsher at the address:
If you copy and paste into your address bar, look at the photo titled Germany 1959. My uncle is at the far right of the photo. If anyone knew him or can put faces to any of the soldiers in the photo and their positions, I'd be gtaeful.
Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you can assist.
