WW2 Irish Guards KIA Medal Group & Bed Plate An emotive early WW2 casualty group to 2717655 Guardsman Thomas Bolger of the Irish Guards who was killed in action on the 14th of May 1940. The group consists of his medals (1939-45 Star + British War Medal), casualty certificate and bed plate bearing his name and number below an Irish Guards badge. The following information is borrowed from www.ww2guards.com: Few Commonwealth troops were in the Netherlands during the 1940 invasion by the Germans, but a small force composed of Royal Marines and Irish and Welsh Guards landed at The Hook of Holland on May 12 and 13, to assist in safeguarding the Dutch Government. It was from this port that, on May 13, Queen Wilhelmina left for England on board a British destroyer. Heavy air raids on the small area defended by our forces caused many casualties, and speedily rendered the position untenable without considerable reinforcements. These could not be spared, and on May 14, the force was evacuated and returned to Dover. A portion of the Hook of Holland General Cemetery was set aside by the local authorities for the graves of soldiers killed in action and the first Commonwealth burials were of soldiers killed in the air raids of 13 May 1940. Two airmen shot down on 12 May 1940, and originally buried near their crashed plane, were moved into the cemetery a fortnight later. Thereafter during the war, casualties washed ashore on the neighbouring beaches, and airmen brought down in the neighbourhood were buried in this cemetery. There were American, Canadian and French servicemen among them, but these have since been moved to other cemeteries. The cemetery now contains a plot of 69 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, nine of them unidentified. There are also five Polish war graves. Thomas Bolger was the son of Patrick and Mary Bolger; husband of Doris Mary Bolger, of Finchley, Middlesex. The inscription on the headstone reads \"I MISS HIS VOICE, HIS LOVING WAYS, WITH HIM I SPENT SUCH HAPPY DAYS\". All items show signs of age but would make a wonderful display if framed up together.

WW2 Typed Military Cross Citation Major Richard Normand Royal Scots Typed WW2 period Military Cross (MC) citation for Major (Temporary) Richard John Normand of The Royal Scots. This was found tucked into a Royal Scots history. Some creasing but otherwise good condition. On the night of April 17/18 1945, Normand was given the task of leading his men around the left flank of the town of Soltan, in Lower Saxony. There was no time for reconnaissance. The company advanced through the streets under sniper and anti-tank fire. But, according to the citation for his MC: "With complete disregard for his own safety Major Normand moved from platoon to platoon organising his advance. Whenever enemy resistance was met he was always on the spot directing operations." The citation directly credited him with the capture of "a total of 10 officers and 228 enemy other ranks". Normand achieved celebrity in his old age for continuing to play competitive golf. He passed away in 2009 and his obituary which contains further details of his life and military career can be found online.
