Eileen Shord

My Mum, Eileen joined up with the ATS when 17 but had a number of roles when in Germany I think including nursing.

eileen shord Belsen

She didn’t speak much about her experience but it was clear what she witnessed left deep psychological scars, some subconscious. I have tried to get both my parents war records but without success. Dad was in the RAF but I don’t see have service numbers. I have her medal for service in Germany but was told she didn’t bother with others.

Mum’s full name was Eileen Norah Shord and her DOB was 20/09/23. She was at some stage a Corporal.

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
