My father, James Buchan Dundas-Taylor "Buck" joined the RAC and was poted to the 2nd Lothans and Border horse in 1939. He was severely wounded at 4:30pm in the a tank battle in the battle for Tunisia. He was repatriated to Wales then to Ediburgh. He spent a year recovering in hospital before being discharged.
He served in B Squadron as a gunner/loader/radio operator (he spoke German) (and occasionally diver) in the Sqn leader tank.
He was wounded attempting to save the driver, Trooper Jack Hunter, from their burning Sherman. Sadly Hunter died the next day.
I would like like to travel to North Africa and follow their footsteps and of course visit Trooper Hunters grave.
