59 Mechanical Equipment Platoon,  News

Albert Norman Turner (Tom)

Here is a picture of my late father Albert Norman Turner (Tom) 59 Mechanical Equipment platoon sitting right to one of Reg Price’s painted signs.
Liberation of Bergen Belsen
Tom is on your list and just to recap, he was one of the Dozer operators and responsible with his team for digging at least Grave No11 and maybe more (See Pic HERE). He spoke many times of the terrible things that he saw in the camp.

This archive has been established after my own relative, Reg Price, took part in the liberation and subsequent humanitarian effort of Bergen Belsen in April 1945. Reg produced this famous sign at Belsen. As part of the 113th DLI, Reg and his comrades were at Belsen for 5 weeks and left when the last hut was empty and ceremonially burnt down. This archive compiles all available resources to build a lasting tribute to all the men and women who helped - any unit, any nationality. If you have a relative, or any info, on the relief effort at Belsen, we’d love you to please get in touch. Email us: liberator@belsen.co.ukThank you Nick Price CreativesFacebookTwitter
