8th Rifle Brigade - from Normandy to the Baltic - June 1944 - May 1945


Names – in alphabetical order – and some additional information for 1526 officers and men of the 8th Rifle Brigade (127 with photo). The number of people mentioned here is much larger than the battalion’s nominal strength of some 38 officers and 816 other ranks. This of course is a result of replacements for losses in killed or wounded, through battle fatigue, or members of the battalion that got transferred to other units. The list is believed to be virtually complete for E, F, G and H Companies but possibly lacking some names for HQ Company.
