Italian Campaign Veteran Returns To Anzio

Posted on May 17, 2019

Walter Nixon, 96, from East Bergholt in Suffolk, was a wireless operator and took part in an amphibious landing at Anzio behind German lines in January 1944.
As part of a tour arranged by the Royal British Legion, he visited the graves of some of the thousands of people killed during the operation – including that of a colleague whose body he removed from the trenches.
Known as the Italian campaign, the Allies broke through the German defences after months of battle, blocking the route to Rome.
