Trooper Frank W. Corson, B/61382, ???

Post by georgetanksherman » Sun Nov 24, 2019 3:38 pm

Was wondering if someone can shed a little bit more light on this Warrior. He married a "Hometown" gal from Fort Worth, and I would like to share his info with the #1 British Flying Training School Museum in Terrell, Texas

CORSON, Trooper, FRANK W., B/61382, 5th (Armd.) Div. H.Q. Sqn., 6th Duke of Connaught's Royal Canadian Hussars, R.C.A.C. 23 November 1943. Age 24. Son of F. Arnold Corson and Rebecca Dailey Corson; husband of Zena Patricia Corson, of Fort Worth, Texas, U.S.A. Grave Ref. III. E. 11.

Any and all help would truly be appreciated, can't find a whole lot of info on the net, just what I have above, all the sights seemed to have copied one another !

Doing some research, I found his father had passed away in Toronto, Canada, so I am guessing that is where Trooper Corson originated from !

Thanks as always Temujin, given that the address for his wife at the time was in England, I guess he had met his wife Zena Patricia Corson, of Fort Worth, Texas, U.S.A. while they were both in England
