I a letter dated september 27, 1949 John Margreiter, a member of 23 AIB/C 2nd platoon, writes a letter to Dutchman Mr. Van Daal.
In this letter he writes of the 23AIB/C men being under fire of a sniper a forest near Overloon.
Is this the moment Joseph Butler got hit?
Many thanks to Jeremy Severn for providing the helmet pictures.
