Both Sgt. Kaiser and Ray Credland are quoted in the book Put on Your Boots and Parachutes by Deryk Wills of Leicester, England. There’s an article about the 82nd written by Wills in the Quorn On-line Museum.

Dad boxing

Dad learned how to box at the YMCA and was quite good. I don’t know which edition of the Static Line this is from. He entertained the idea of becoming a professional boxer, but having his knuckle blown off after D-Day squelched that plan.
