Happy 100th birthday to Staff Sergeant Staveley, R.T.R.

SSgt Francis Staveley who served in 6 and 5 RTRs in the Second World War. He saw action in North Africa, Palestine, Italy, and NW Europe. He turns 100 today, 26 September 2020.

Unfortunately I could not locate any information on his service in detail, but Gareth Davies was kind enough to note that he served in the following areas: El  Alamein (all 3), Mersa Matruh, Tobruk x2, El Adem, Sidi Barrani, Benghazi, Agheila.
