I give you Robert Fredrick (Fred) Geddes.
43Wessex , Royal Ordance, he landed in Europe on D+1 and remained there until the end of the war. He was part of the push to Arnhem. Never spoke much of the war but was proud when I joined.

Not a Tank but this is me in 2008

Looks like your Grandfather was in the same Division as my Father, and Uncle; though they were in the Recon section (Part of The Royal Armoured Corps) :thumbup: 43rd Wessex was also involved with Caen (Hill 112), the Reichswald campaign, and much more, apart from the race to Arnhem.
Good to have you onboard, Steve :thumbup: :)
