The Editor - Paul Cheall, Bill's son, started a business selling car insurance on the internet and he is now semi-retired. He lives in Norfolk.
After leaving school at fourteen, BILL CHEALL worked in the family grocery business. He joined the Territorial Army in April 1939 and was called up just before the outbreak of war and became a Green Howard. His wartime experiences with the BEF in France, North Africa, Sicily and North West Europe are the subject of this book. After recovering from his D-Day wounds he was assigned to the Regimental Police of the East Lancashire Regiment in Germany. He was discharged on 8 January 1946 and returned to the family grocery business which he ran until he retired. He passed away peacefully in 1999 and is much missed by his wife Anne and children, Pauline and Paul.
