PostSubject: Tracing personnel deceased (in service) after 1948   S/Sgt Michael 'Roy' Thompson RA Icon_minitime22/1/2021, 17:08

I knew a Roy Thompson in that age group in 25 Regt RA but 25 never served in Dortmund  
- confirmed, it was the guy from 25 Fd Regt who had been posted to 1 ADSR, Herford.  (25 RA went  in to suspended animation in 1984 from Barker Barracks Paderborn, and those who were not transferred to 3 RHA, were posted out to extra-regimental posts (E2) and to other RA Regts). Roy Thompson had won a Queen's Commendation for Bravery award whilst serving in Malaya by saving a number of kids being swept away in a flood.  His father (having served through the ranks in WW2) had been the QM of 24 Msl Regt.

Mandy,

If you go to this link,

https://www.twgpp.org/photograph/view/3800028



You will find a reduced size photo of S/Sgt thompsons grave at Tidworth.

The link also gives you the choice to download a much larger photo, which shows all his details.

You can order and pay for the larger photo via the Link.  If I remember correctly, I think it is sent to your  email address should you choose?


Mandy, This site is ok to use, I use it for similar requests like yours, that I have handled in the past on this BFG - Locations site where I support, alongside others, who help with queries, along with  Pborn4 as well..

Regards
Alan
