Hi Dominic.I am currently awaiting Corporal Goodchilds RM service record so I did not know about his service in the Zeebrugge raid,I only have is LS unfortunately which I picked up on Ebay.Same with the other 2 Royal Marines,I am currently awaiting their service records.Do you still have some information on Bugler Harry Camfield as I am the same Bob!!!!!!! Hope you are well Dom and picked up some nice bits yourself.
My email address is email@example.com.Thanks Bob Clayton.
Having checked my records, I don't think either of the other two were on the Zeebrugge Raid. But Cpl Goodchild was, as you doubtless already know. I have a copy of his record of service, though you've probably got a copy already.
I have attempted to download a copy of the 1 Platoon photo, which you will see from the back, was his copy and now resides in the RM Museum. Sadly it doesn't say which one he is, but I have a hunch he's the corporal sitting 2nd from left with two stripes. The only other corporal in evidence is in the back row and I know who he is. The lance-corporal at the other end of the first row of seated men is L/Cpl Heffernan whose medals I have. He was killed trying to stamp out bombs that landed on the deck of the Iris. He was MID, though his citation in the original recommendations is among those who got CGMs. Doubtless he'd have got one if he'd survived.
Is it just the RFR LSGC you have for Goodchild?
Regards for now,
PS Sorry, can't download the pix so let me have your email and I'll send over copies of the pix directly.
