Dennis Franklyn Gordon - served with 6th Bn. South Staffordshire Regiment and survived the War   

Dennis, William Cliford Lance Corporal 4928439
2/6th Bn. South Staffordshire Regiment
Born 7th July 1922 in Wolverhampton son of John William and Sarah Dennis.
Killed in action 8th July 1944 aged 22.
The 1939 cenus records that Dennis was living at 106 Bruford Road, Wolverhampton with his mother and older sister Clarice (b1915) and younger sister Veronica (b1928). His father was living at 3 Legge street with William’s older brother Franklin (b1918). Dennis was employed as a drilling machinist.
The 2/6th Bn South Staffordshire Regiment was part of the 59th Division. This Division was part of the follow up force in the 1944 Normandy campaign. The Staffords crossed the Channel in late June and by the 1st July had moved to the front-line facing Caen. The city was fiercely defended and earlier attempts to outflank it had been frustrated by continued German counter attacks. General Montgomery had, therefore, decided on a frontal attack preceded by heavy aerial bombardment.
On the 8th July, the 2/6th as part of the 197th brigade was ordered to attack and take Galamanche a small French hamlet.
Just before dawn a barrage was brought down on the German frontline in support of the 2/6th by the 241st Battery (Stafford Battery), Royal Artillery which the troops followed. Galamanche was defended by the 12th S.S. Panzer Division fighting fanatically. The 2/6th found that the supporting artillery was having little effect on the hidden German trenches, machine gun and mortar positions. The British barrage continued but the attack was halted, the 2/6th lay in the crops being assaulted by accurate mortar fire with any attempt to move being answered by accurate German machine gun fire; casualties were heavy, there they remained until relieved later in the day having lost half its officers and 200 men, William being one of them.
