February 1943: Gunner Bruno Anderson and his Bofors gun & crew were emplaced right across the street from the Grand Hotel. You can see him and his crew in this photograph. I know that it is a very long shot – but does anyone remember meeting him? He was 20 years old and exceptionally cute! While shooting at a German bomber, his gun emplacement was bombed and he was injured. I’d like to know to what hospital he would have been taken. Can anyone suggest where this might have been?
Also would like to know if anybody has the name of the elderly lady who is the daughter of the managers of the Grand Hotel during WW2. Apparently she is presently writing a history of the Grand and its involvement with The War, particularly at the time of Dunkirk. She would have been a young girl in 1943 and I would really like to contact her.
