The following information about Walter has kindly been given by Tamara Crewe.
In September 1944 the Bury Free Press reported that Walter and his brother had met up in Italy. Whilst on leave they had spent a week together. At the time their parents lived at 13 Coronation Place, Brandon.
Here is the photo from the BFP showing Walter, in his Royal Army Medical Corps uniform and his brother, who the BFP named only as “J. Arnold”, of the Royal army Service Corps. Both were reported as both being in good health. They were keen sportsmen and were members of Brandon’s cricket and football clubs.
