One who did not Return for VE Day World War 2 Alans Story

I recently watched a moving and informative program made by the famous English footballer Gary Lineker about his grandad who served in the medical corps in WW2. He was in the Allied landings at Salerno, Italy on Sept 9/10 1943. He was a caring and brave man who did his very best to help the wounded and dying in that terrible event. My granddad’s brother Alan Atherton was one of the dying. Perhaps Gary Lineker’s grandad was there at the end for Alan. It was a program that shed more light on a story that is much overlooked.
This is Alan’s story:
