    Notes 
    • Thanks to Janet Howes for the following:
      Edward Howes served in World War Two in the Transport Company, Royal Army Service Corps. He was posted to Africa with the 8th Army, then embarked at Alexandria for Italy. They first stopped at Augusta, Syracuse, Sicily. At this time he was in charge of a Chevrolet lorry. On arriving at Messina, "We were given some sad news that some of our militia in gliders towed by American pilots had been cast adrift when their aircraft came under fire". They crossed the straits and arrived in Brindisi, Italy, shortly moving to a small village called Nolay at the foot of Mount Vesuvius where the company was stationed, moving on to Naples where they stayed for 9 months. "It was then for the first time we came under enemy fire, as they used to come over and bomb the port." They moved through Monte Cassino on to Rome. He was called into the Commanding Officer's office and was told he was going home under the 'Python Ruling' that nobody should have to serve over 4 and a half years overseas, which he had done.
