Wallace Eric Adderley – Photo – The Corporals 15082 Unit (with names), November 1944

Chris Adderley (Wallace’s son) writes: On the back of the photo is written “The Corporals 15082 Unit, Nov 1944” and names.

One anecdote I remember, Dad saying how on the journey over he was in the landing craft with a self-heating can of soup. Dad was driving on the day, I remember him saying that the truck got waterlogged coming off the landing craft.

In addition, I have a copy of his ID card for mechanical transport drivers.

Peter Best writes: I think the photo of the Corporals was taken close to the disbanding of 15082 in November 1944. According to my father’s diary, Chris’ father was in charge of telephone faults.
