    Trying to contact Brian "Sapper" Guy

    Hi

    If I may skip a formal intro for the moment, I am a fellow British Vet trying to contact Brian who appears to have dropped out of the scene at the moment.

    If anyone can help me, or just assure me that he is OK then fine.

    Regards to all

    Ron Goldstein

    Jim

    Well done that man, it's good to know that Brian is OK !

    Obviously the last e-mail address I had from him was out of date and so I would be obliged if you could ask him to contact me.

    In return I promise to come back here and formally introduce myself.

    Thanks again

    Ron

    Intro from another British WW2 vet


    Hi

    As a Brit who accidentally came across this website while looking up a friend I think I would be considered un-grateful if I didn't introduce myself properly.

    The simplest way, for me, anyway, is to supply a few links:

    The main link to my Personal Profile on the BBC WW2 Peoples War Archives is:
    BBC - WW2 People's War - Ron Goldstein's War

    This profile, which includes a chronological index of my wartime travels, was created in 2006 just before the website became a "sealed" archive, accepting no further postings.

    To call up any individual story, scroll down to "Stories contributed by Ron Goldstein" and click on the link.

    Postings I made to "Threads" started by others can also be found at "Ron Goldstein added messages to the following stories"

    Be warned...............there's an awful lot to read out there :happy:

    Regards to all

    Ron

    Welcome Ron. There is indeed an awful lot to read there !

    I see after a quick scan of it all that you were inspired to write poetry in Sicily. So I am guessing you are a fan of Hamish Henderson ?

    Who's Hamish Henderson ?

    Dave

    And actually, I'm not kidding :der: . As an ex Italy man I've heard the D-Day Dodgers song so many times but never bothered to find out who the original author was.

    Thanks for the welcome and yes... I did warn you that there was a lot to read. The poem, by the way is the only one I ever wrote so something I saw in Adrano must have inspired me.

    Cheers

    Ron

    Lol. It's also funny then that I have never actually heard the song performed. I have about three audio versions of Henderson's "51st Highland Division's Farewell to Sicily", but none of "The Dodgers". I only have the lyrics, the history and the knowledge that it is sung to the tune of "Lili Marlene".....

    It's Sebastiaan. I am Dutch. So we say Sebastiaan, but it is not a problem if you call me Sebastian.:thumb:
