The Monte Cassino Society is dedicated to furthering an interest in the experiences of those from all nations who took part in the Italian Campaign of World War II.
Our aims: - to collect, document and preserve information about the veterans' experiences. - to encourage access to the accounts, memoirs, recollections and associated information about the campaign in the hopes that the experiences are remembered by future generations.
The society was formed by three daughters of veterans of the Battles of Cassino: Rosalind Galloway, whose father David Galloway served in the 2nd Battalion, The Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders; Judith Coote, whose father Gerald Soady served with the 91st LAA, Royal Artillery; and, Suzanne Turk, whose father William Turk served with 'B' Squadron, 51st Royal Tank Regiment. The Society's treasurer is Stan Pearson whose father, Sgt John Pearson of the Lincolnshire Regiment, is buried in Cassino War Cemetery.
If you would like to know more about the Society, can contribute an account, memoir or recollection, or know a son, daughter or relative who feels, as we do, that the experiences of those who took part in the Italian Campaign should not be forgotten, we would like to hear from you.
