My thanks to all who responded to my request re. WWII dispatch rider images, I now have a couple of images (in colour even) which give me all the details I need. The painting will be called "Through" and hopefully I'll be able to post it on here when finished in around 5 - 6 weeks time.

Once again, Thanks guys and gals.

My father served in the Corps (as did I, but much later) during WWII as a dispatch rider in Africa, India and Italy finally ending the war in Austria. I have been searching for images of dispatch riders of that era so that I can produce a painting of that subject for him. Unfortunately I have not been able to find a suitably detailed image and am seeking help from any members who may have such an image or who can point me in the right direction.

Sorry to say I don't know what year my father died. All I know of his service record was that he served in Sicily in the Signals and his paybook has him as Frederick Harry John George Nicholas, Lance Corporal. He rode motorbikes and he and his mates had Jack Russells as pets, so if this rings a bell I'd love to know what exactly he got up to during and after the war.

Does anybody know anything about LCpl Robin Lister who died in Northern Ireland in February 1980. I am meeting his mother later this week as she gets presented with the Elizabeth Cross.

Your Military History Filmed for the Next Generation

The Legasee war veterans project is looking for volunteers who want to tell their stories.

As part of an exciting social history project, the film company Legasee is looking for war veterans who would like to have their stories filmed for posterity.

This footage will be used to launch a unique online archive of interviews for use by schools, colleges and members of the public.

To kick-start the project, we’re looking for war veterans of any age who wish to recall their experiences in front of the camera for the benefit of future generations.
It doesn’t matter what campaign or country they served in, or what role they played. The Legasee war veterans project is completely free of charge, with any travel expenses paid – all we need is their knowledge, enthusiasm and a small amount of their time to take part in the filming.
If you know anyone that’s interested, please ask them to email me giving their name, age, daytime phone number and brief details of their wartime service so we can contact them to discuss this further.

We hope to hear from you, and please feel free to forward this email to any war veterans that you think might be interested.

Please visit our web site for more information about Legasee -

Kind regards
