Hello, I'm trying to find any details on my cousin John Joseph Dunne, known as Jacky, who was serving with the Irish Guards in Germany when he was killed in an accident either whilst based in Hamburg or whilst on duty there for some reason. We think it was a road accident and possibly involved a motorbike. It would have been sometime around 1951/1952. He was born in Bray in Ireland in 1928.

Can anyone let me know if they know if/where the Irish Guards were based and if any records of soldiers who died whilst serving in Germany post WW2 might be found? Too much to hope for that any other Irish Guards are out there who might have known him.......

Alan, thanks for the information. Please do send the link although I'm not sure how much info is actually given on the grave markers. I'm interested in finding out if he was married (unlikely but possible). I'll try to find military records based on the service number you supplied. I'm getting information first hand from another cousin who is great at remembering names but not dates or details. Having said that, he is 90 but as sharp as a tack.

Best regards,
