Grenadier Guards' Soldiers World War Two

This list includes officers and men who have either been prominent in the regiment or in public life. Some have been awarded the Victoria Cross and some have been killed or mortally wounded in action. Some VC winners and fallen heroes can also be found in the list of Commanding Officers. There are many who fully deserve to be on the Soldiers list who are not because we do not have a picture or information. If you have the name of someone from the Grenadier Guards past or present then we would like to hear from you. Please contact Charles Griffin or Stephen Luscombe.
