    I have just posted some material on my web site - the excellent Normandy daily diary of Sergeant Douglas E Gray MM, sent in by his son, Douglas. What amazing reading they make, together with pics of not just Normandy, but Sicily and N Africa aswell. Douglas was in the 7th Green Howards and landed on Gold Beach, with what I think would have been the second wave and a very a hairy time.
    There are also some very good poems that he wrote just waiting for someone to publish! The diary is at
    He also writes about his MM exploit without realising he would get an MM for it. Included is the subsequent citation and copies of Synge's {book} record of events.
    Thanks Paul
