'Our Jack', Jack Roland Simpson, my Dads youngest brother in a large family, was a Sgt.Tank Commander in the 13/18th.Hussars. After his death a few years ago I was loaned a small diary he kept from Jan.1944 until Dec.1945. I collated this diary for Jacks children to help them understand some of the notes appertaining to military life. I was helped by Nancy Langmaid of the Bovvy research team and Pat Hennesey of the 13/18th. who went in on DDay in DD's. I have left out personal family notes and there are some days missing, but if you wish I will post diary notes daily from June 6th. until VE day. "Tuesday June 6th. D Day. Landed in France at Lion-sur- Mer at 10.00hrs. opposition slight except for shelling.(Gap until Sunday June 11th.)"
