Lieutenant- Colonel Douggie Moir

Lieutenant- Colonel Douggie Moir   submitted on Sun, 05/11/2008 - 11:37 in Obituaries Group by Serginho

Douggie Moir was a tank troop leader with the 3rd Royal Tank Regiment in May 1940 and took part in the 30th Infantry Brigade’s defence of Calais against elements of Guderian’s XIX Panzer Corps, which had swept up from Abbeville and Boulogne. 30th Brigade had been landed at Calais specifically to hold the port, but the odds against them were overwhelming. Together with the greater part of the brigade, Moir was taken prisoner and spent the rest of the war attempting to escape and helping others to do so — but a home run eluded him.
