The upload came out very well, I will post the name to see if it is recognised.

Paul.

Names posted on other site, waiting now to see if there is a result.

PostSubject: Photographs.   14/7/2008, 11:12

I have posted edited images of the plinth and the Div flash to see if they yield any results. Nothing concrete from the name yet, although I have had a couple of replies.

If you can and wish to, post the other side of Pharailda's photo.

Paul.

PostSubject: 41 Searchlight Regiment.   14/7/2008, 18:28

I have found that this Regiment, part of the TA, was formed from the 41st AA Bn R.E. in August 1940. Until about July 1940 they were based in the Midlands (Home territory I would suppose) and were part of 32 AA Brigade. In September 1939 the Battery numbers were 362, 363, 364, and 365.

From there they went to North West Europe, and if the the soldier in the photo signed "Jack" was in the same Regiment, they may have been part of 30 Corps who ended the war in North Germany, although I cannot verify this entirely.

Unfortunately, nothing has come up yet to positively identify the family or the statue.

It appears though that the family in question is predominantly Belgian, and there does seem to be someone who is tracing the family tree. I was sent two links that include the name, but they do not include the three names you gave.

Maybe a further look about will turn something up at some stage.
