I am looking for any references to 132 Field Ambulance in Italy in 1944 (under Command of Lt Col HVD Iles and any reference to one of my mums brothers who was killed on 20th October 1944 (7373105 Pte AE Layton RAMC) – any personal diaries or possible map. Any links or ideas would be brilliant.
20 Oct 44 is an interesting date for 132 Fd Amb. Three soldiers were killed that day which is a large number for a Fd Amb. You might want to get hold of the War Diaries and find out the circumstances of your uncle’s death. It is bound to be recorded with such a high loss.
He was killed along with Pte WG Ellen and Pte KC Haynes and they are all buried together in Faenza CWGC Cemetery.
