would anybody know or knew of Pte Jack(John) Sharp who had lived in York when joining up can't be sure wether Pioneer Corps,was his original choice but was certainly in the Pioneers 1944/5 He could have been posted north London during these two years then possibly moved on,born we think mid 1920s? Have his address in York, but have no service number, if I had this would reveal his service details for the duration, do not know wether he survived the war for he was never seen again after about July1945 maybe earlier,not a lot to go on but can anybody help?Brian

Have you looked on to see if there is a wartime death for your John Sharp ?

Have been on just about all the sites,but quite honestly I do not have his serial number to tie him down to ,where he is or wether in fact he is alive today(Slim chance I would think ) but you never know.Have an address in York for 1946, but not there and that's about all I have. That's the reason for the thread see if someone knew of a Jack Sharp in those days, Heres hoping and many thanks for your help. :-
