Did you Know
or Jack Wood as he liked to be known as
We are having great difficulty in tracing a relative from the second
world war and am hoping you may be able to help, . My wife's father
was named John Wood or Jack Wood as he liked to be known, we know
he served with the Lancashire Fusiliers in the early part of WW2
because we have a photograph of him in a frame with the regiment
title around it. All the other information we have points to him
moving to the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers during WW2 then serving
as a glider trained airborne operative later in the war, he was
then seriously injured near Caen. I have paid for the RNF search
and they cannot find any trace of him (unfortunately we do not know
his army number) I know we only have minor detail but hope you may
be able to help us.
We think he made the rank of Sergeant.
The details are Mr John Wood, Born in Darwen, Lancashire on the
20th of November 1915, we think he had joined the army prior or
very early to the start of the war has the pic we have got is from
1940. If it helps in anyway please let me know and I will scan the
picture and send it to you. Many Thanks.
