Cpl Victor Scott 4612746

Signature ScottIn addition to his signature on the shed wall & his PoW Questionnaire, I have been able to track Cpl Scotts actual capture down as it is referred to in his unit’s War Diary for July 15th 1944. The War Diary was usually updated by the regimental adjutant & depending upon their skills, interest & time available these can either be full of information, or a single line. Fortunately, in this case, there is quite a full entry

For the sake of clarity, the “36 Grenades” mentioned are not the number that were thrown, but the type of weapon… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mills_bomb
