Killed in action or died of wounds
Roll of Honour:
Mne. Pry, Heavy Weapons Troop (HWT), died of wounds inflicted during operations in Holland. At the time of his death his Commando took part in an unsuccessful attack on the German held small island of Kapelsche Veer which lies between the River Maas and the River Oudermaas. The HWT had been acting as as stretcher bearers on this raid. Marine Wildman is quoted in the book 'From Omaha to the Scheldt', that as he passed Mne Benny Pry who had been seriously injured, Mne Pry said to him " Mind where you're treading Fred, I think I've lost my feet." Mne. Pry was rescued but died from his wounds. (Source: Professor (Capt) John Forfar MC. 47RM Cdo. 'From Omaha to the Scheldt.)
