Robert Leslie Kunkel Deceased
« on: June 06, 2019, 06:38:33 PM »
I am searching for the family of the late ::--

Pte Robert Leslie KUNKEL is one of the 372 British Servicemen who died on active service during the four-year Cyprus Emergency April 1 1955 to April 18 1959, and whose name is among those remembered with honour on the British Cyprus Memorial. Serving with the Parachute Regiment he died in Nicosia on April 13 1956. Aged 18 from Londonderry he is buried at Wayne’s Keep, the British military cemetery in Cyprus, Plot 20 Row B Grave 2.[/font][/size]

My reason is to let his family know that he has not been forgotten by his comrades and that we now have two memorials in memory of the 372 men who died in the 1955 to 1959 Cyprus emergency. One in Kyrenia Cyprus and the other in The National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. Also to let the family know that they are entitled to receive The Elizabeth Cross. I would also like to hear from  anyone who served in Cyprus during the 1955 to 1959 emergency. For more details Google Les Smith Cyprus Veteran
