Army No. : 95088

Awards : Croix de Guerre


Major Fenton landed in Normandy on D day 6th June 1944. He was wounded early in the operation but remained at duty. From the moment he landed until the day the 6th Airborne Division ceased to operate he was a constant source of inspiration to his men, his personal gallantry, charm and unfailing cheerfulness were such that the officers and men of his company would have done anything for him. On his great energy and devotion to duty as Officer Commanding 1st Company of 6th Airborne Divisional Signals and his happy knack of co operation with everybody was based the high standard of communications at Divisional Headquarters.
