My dad was in Palestine from August 1945 to late 1946 when he was demobbed. He was a driver/mechanic in the RASC and drove a truck on a regular route between Jerusalem and Ismailia.
He was a tiny man from south Lancashire. He was very reluctant to tell me much about it and now he has gone. He flew from England on a Liberator bomber following 11 days leave between the invasion of Europe and his posting in Burma. In the end he stopped in Jerusalem after the Japanese surrendered.
I know just a little of the conditions: the heat, the disease and the flies. I am reading the history of the politics and terrorism.
I hope to write a novel about his war time experiences so any one who knew him or the circumstances at the time would be a great contact. I look forward to hearing from some one
Who do you wish to contact ? Any one who knew William Atherton
