My uncle Nevile James Boswell was killed in action at El Alamein 28/06/1942. He was with the NZ 'B' Force 30th Infantry. My daughter has visited his grave. Would like to make contact with anyone else having family that served El Alamein, 1941-1942.

My Uncle (my mothers brother) died on 24 October 1942 and was buried in El Alamein. Beside him is No. 67266 H. W. Harland, 24th Bn NZ Infantry. Died aged 23 on 26 October 1942. We are looking for his relatives (maybe my married name relatives too). If any one can help much appreciated.
