Guest Book

My late father - Trooper Leslie Chaffe - served with the 2nd Derbyshire Yeomanry during the Second World War...from North Africa to Europe. He didn't like to discuss what he had seen, or done, but he did talk about the comradeship and the people he met.


Having found some of his old photographs I thought it fitting that they (and any that you can supply) should be made available to others and, hopefully, names can be put to the faces - 'Lest we Forget'.
