Hi. My Dad (Ken Angell, Ox & Bucks) had a friend called Dukey who he said was killed when they crossed the Elbe in 1945. This might be the same man. I only have a small bit of info relating to Dukey that Dad passed on to me before he died. My email is should a family member read this and want to get in touch.
