Sgt Ted Adcook
The sad death of another former Queen's Royal Regiment WW2 veteran, Ted Adcook is announced.  Ted died in Watford Hospital on 27 April.  Ted was in 2nd/5th during the war and a few words about him are below:
"Ted Adcook originally came from Sunderland.  After voluntarily enlisting in July 1939 he was sent to the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Regiment, serving with them from February 1940 in Northern France and during the subsequent disastrous campaign, eventually being evacuated from Cherbourg.  After recovery back in UK he was sent as a reinforcement to 2nd/5th Queen’s, then in Cumberland.  After two years with the Battalion in UK he did the long journey with 169 (Queen’s) Brigade from UK to Libya via Iraq.  By now a Corporal Ted also fought at Enfidaville before preparing for the landings at Salerno.  Promoted again to be a platoon sergeant in D company, during the crossing to Salerno Ted was suffering with diphtheria and a very high temperature but, despite being given the opportunity to stand down, he refused and went ashore with his platoon.  Ted was with his company during the early hours of D+1 when the battalion was engaged in another furious battle with German armour near Montecorvino airfield.  Ted was captured and spent the rest of the war in prison camp.  After repatriation and discharge at the end of the war he settled and lived the rest of his life near Hemel Hempstead, celebrating his 100th birthday in July 2018."
