Sgt John Wintershausen MM, 16 DLI

Just added in the March 18th update is an excellent collection of photographs of Sgt John Wintershausen, who was awarded the Military Medal for his actions with the Pioneer Platoon of 16 DLI at Salerno on 17/9/43. These were kindly provided by his son Paul and include members of the Battalion posing with the Nazi flag that John Wintershausen liberated from the one-time Gestapo HQ in Athens, Greece, in December 1944. These photos begin from this page:
