Albert Victor Saker killed in action 1945
My name is Linda Davies and my uncle, Albert Victor Saker was killed at the age of 25 during the second world war. He served with the army as a sapper. His number was 2076719 and he was with 157 Railway Construction Company. We understand that he died dismantling a bomb alongside a man called Clark(e?) who we think held the rank of major. Uncle Bert died on Friday, 6th April 1945 and he has a place at the Jonkerbos War Cemetery in Gelderland in the Netherlands. He is survived by his twin sister, Joan, his younger sister, Mamie (now 79) and his two half sisters Beatrice and Winefred.
We think that Bert had previously been in the parachute regiment and we wonder if he took part in "Operation Market Garden".
If anyone has any information about him, we would love to hear it.
