Description

Corporal Anthony Bertram Lloyd. 1st Btn. Parachute Regiment. (ON 32-39) Killed 23 March 1945. Operation Market Garden. Buried ARNHEM OOSTERBEEK WAR CEMETERY. Military Medal. Son of Bertram Harold, a brewers manager, and his wife Ada Lloyd.

From The Nottinghamian March 1945:
Although his interests at the school always centered on the Athletic side, he had an unswerving loyalty to the school, which he had revisited on several occasions during his military service.
The following tribute is paid to him by a friend which seems to sum up his character most appropriately.
" Tony Lloyd was always in any mischief that was going, but under a seeming cloak of irresponsibility there lay a deep respect for law and order. His loyalty and staunchness of heart were a source of inspiration to those who knew him- one felt here was a comrade to have at one's side in an emergency, a fellow whose courage steadied the nerves, and whose unfailing good humour showed a ray of hope in the darkest of moments". This staunchness of heart fostered on the playing fields and in the boxing ring- he was a boxer of considerable promise and won the Light Heavyweight Cup of his Battalion, earned him a Military Medal during the North African Campaign.
