Hello

I have been trying to dig out some information on my grandfather and his service history.

From what I can make out he served with 5th Bn Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment. He was killed on 4 September 1942. I was wondering if anyone knows what his unit was doing around that time? I believe they arrived in Egypt in July 1942 and in September they were involved in the Battle of Alam Halfa. Does anyone know if this is correct or have any further information, it would be appreciated.

Many Thanks

John Whitehouse.
