He was 5 feet 5 inches tall, had brown hair and was known as Barney back in Liverpool.   Bernard was married to Ellen (Nellie) and had one son, also called Bernard. He was outposted to Malta on Oct. 29th, 1940, three years to the day before he was shipped to Italy in 1943. He was in Hospital at Malta from September 1943 to 27 October 1943 ...

On 29 October 1943 he was sent to Italy. Sadly Bernard was killed in action on 25 January 1944 and is buried at Minturno War Cemetery. He was 31 when he died.

Hoping to find out/contact anyone who knew him or of his regiment. When he was killed in Italy his regiment had changed to Royal Artillery 51 Medium Regt. I dont know why? I hope to find where he was stationed in Malta so I can visit.

his Grandson, Anthony

Bill operated Radar and Anti Aircraft guns. He worked in many places around the Island, including Valletta, Marsa, Zebbug, Luqa and Tal Kali.

My Dad unfortunately died in February 1980. He left me all his photos he took while serving on Malta along with his diaries of day to day events between 1941 - 44.
