$1,605


A Kangol beret dated 1942, size 7 3/8 inairborne/parachute maroon with an RAMC badge which wasgivento me when I was a child and lived in Eastbourne, East Sussex by a friend of the family, Doctor Peter Smith. He was apparently at Arnhem in 1944 and captured by the Germans, being awarded a a Mention inDispatchesduring his internment. In later life he worked at Eastbourne district general hospital and at one point operated on my mother!
he told me that he had worn this beret in Arnhem and throughout his later captivity, I cannot prove this unfortunately, but the beret is dated 1942 and I wanted to pass on what I was told.Smith, Peter (1916-1995)Epsom College: 1925-1934
PETER SMITH (1916-1995). M.B., B.S. (Lond.), F.R.C.S. (Eng.) [Epsom College 1925-1934. Cricket XI] was the son of Dr P. W.W. Smith, of Newington Causeway, South London. He received his medical education at St Thomas’s Hospital, and wasappointed Consultant General Surgeon at Eastbourne (1951-1976). During the Second World War he served in theR.A.M.C. (1941-1946), in North Africa, and Southern Italy, before going to Arnhem in 1944. When taken prisoner hevolunteered to remain with his men in Stalag 11B, Germany. He was mentioned in dispatches.
I am selling all the items he gave me, as they are sat in cupboards and never see the light of day, which is a real pity.
The German jacket listedseparatelywas what he walked back from Germany in after the war apparently.
He served as a doctor/surgeon in the RAMC attached to the Airborne division.
I will start at 99p only, but worth much, much more, check the other items. Postage MUST be tracked.
