9 Para's Chaplain, Normandy 1944

It seems from the '39-45 Living History Society' that the Chaplain of the 9th Paras, Rev J. Gwinnett, who would have been known to my uncle Private Daniel Roderick Hurley, not only cared for the dead and wounded of the Paras, but also of the German enemy troops.

The site linked to above has some interesting material on 9 Para in Normandy, and the role of Rev. Gwinnett and others.
