Clifford Martin, A Hanged Sergeant

The Martins: April 1943 shows Cliff in uniform at sixteen and a half with (from left) - Cliff's sister Ethel; their mum Nanda; dad Arnold and his other sister Daisy (my mum)." Clifford Martin's nephew, Jean-Pierre Roger.

In July 1947 Sgt Clifford Martin and his friend, Sgt Mervyn Paice were hanged by the Irgun.

The irony was that Martin was actually born Jewish although it seems he was unawares of his religion.

Oh what a lovely find on Blogger! My name is Victoria and I am sat here with my 7 year old daughter Darcy researching about her Great Great Uncle Clifford for her school WWII project at school...and look what we find!

The lady on the far left is my Norna Vikki, so Clifford is my Great Uncle and your mother my Great Auntie Daisy.
