I would dearly love to know if there is anyone out there with any stories about my father Bombardier Ernest ‘P Smithie’ Christie. I know that he was involved in the invasion of Sicily and saw things that he chose not to talk about to me. I know that one of his best friends was Colonel John Grant OBE who was involved with the evacuation of Burma. I have photos of my father in uniform in I believe, Sanpancrazio following the invasion Sicily. I know he spent time in a field hospital in north Africa where he suffered from quinzies – abscesses on the tonsils, but very little else. I know one of his best friends was called Sandy who I believe was a childhood friend from Stonehaven in Scotland. I do hope someone can fill in some gaps for me.
