Unidentified Allied Soldier know to my Father during 1944/45 Belguim/France or Denmark
We found this picture in my late Fathers photograph album some of which were taken during his time in the Ardennes 1944-1945
My Fathers name was Sgt G.W.Baldwin MM (known as Tiny - - because he wasn't !!!) his Army number was 6915249 and he was with the 8th Bn of The Rifle Brigade/29th Armoured Bridge/11th British Armoured Div.
We know from a Danish newspaper that he was involved in instructing the Danish army on rifle shooting (we have a picture of this but as of yet not translation)
The soldier in this picture obviously was a good friend as the inscriptions says 'To Tiny hoping you will never forget'
From the stories we have been told my some of his men that my Father was thought of very highly by everyone, and this seems to applies to our unidentied soldier
We have shown his photo album to everyone that we could find that knew him and they do not recognise this particular picture, we have researched uniforms but still have drawn a blank.
I hope this picture and our story is enough for you to help us identify and which will, maybe,enable us to find him.
If you think you need more information please contact make contact.
Many thanks in anticipation.
