Wilfred John Bond


I am looking for any members recollection of my father's cousin Wilfred John Bond (CH/X697) originally from Norfolk but had family in Scotland.

He was a Royal Marine Corporal who according to records was attached to the British forces at Trieste from 1st Jan 1946 to 7th March 1947.

He had been a Marine Gunner at the Battle of the River Plate on HMS Ajax before in June 1940 joining the Royal Marine Brigade, subsequently 40 Commando, then Holding Operational Commando. He had been wounded and hospitalised during the Scilly/Italian Campaigns.

If anyone remembers him I would be very interested to find out more. Thank you.
