Ann Claire Kay is looking for Emil Lev Katscherov ( AKA Katscher /Kay)

Last seen: Palestine

I am trying to locate anyone who knew my father who fought with the 8th Army, then the D-Day Landings, and was at the liberation of Belsen. I understand that he was an Officer who was in a Tank Battalion. He ended up heading a Tank Battalion, but because he changed our family from Katscher to Kay in 1963 in London I am having great difficulty locating any information about my father's British military service. He was a Czech Jew who joined the 8th Army in North Africa after escaping from a concentration camp in Poland and making his way to Palestine.
