Paul Bayliss and John Bayley

by Paul Bayliss

My father Paul Bayliss was with B Coy 2 Battalion Dorsetshire Regiment at the Battle of Kohima as part of General Slims 14th Army.

Although badly wounded he survived and now lives in Morgan age 86!

My Uncle John Bayley who was in C Company still lives in Aldridge UK.

Dad lost a lung and John lost an eye.

We often marched together on Anzac Day.
