With Sympathy

by | Oct 3, 2022 | News

We announce the death of 14445993 Sgt Maurice Henry Roberts who died peacefully on 24 September 2022. Maurice enlisted in the Royal Sussex Regiment in March  1944, transferring to the Parachute Regiment in January 1945. In May 1945 he was part of Operation Doomsday, the military occupation of Norway immediately after the allied victory in Europe. Maurice returned to the regiment in January 1946 and was deployed first to Trieste and then to Palestine witnessing the attack on the Kind David Hotel in Jerusalem. Maurice returned to the UK and saw out his service with the Home Counties Training Battalion, Shorncliffe up to his discharge in July 1952. Maurice was, for a time, a member of the regimental association. We extend our sincere condolences to his family at this sad time. May he rest in peace.
