Additional Information

My great uncle, Private SIDNEY TEVERSHAM was in 1 Battalion, Dorsetshire Regiment and died on 12 August 1944 after landing in Normandy. The Dorset Regiment took part in battles around Tilly in France and they were attacked by German Tiger Tanks and left with little more than a company of men.

 

Private Sidney Teversham was 28 years old when he gave his life for freedom. Unfortunately Freedom is never free it comes at a price.

 

A local lady in Normandy used to look after, and regularly place fresh flowers, at his grave.1
