Death 1 Mar 1945 (age 37) Groesbeek, Netherlands13,14
PS 38 Alfred Samuel Deakin, Guildford Borough

Lieutenant on the General List;

Control Commission Europe

Died aged 37, 1.3.1945

PS Deakin trod on a mine whilst serving as a Lieutenant on the General List as a member of the Control Commission. He was aged 37 when he died the son of Alfred and Alice Elizabeth Deakin of Guildford and husband of Lily Margaret Deakin, of Guildford, Surrey, England. He is buried in the Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery, Netherlands.

PC Deakin joined the Guildford Borough Police on the 8 August 1931 being sworn in the Guildhall on the 10 August before W T Patrick Esq., DR G C Williamson, Mrs E Harris, R F Billing Esq. Formerly he had been a machinist and soldier with the Coldstream Guards for 7 years. When joining he lived in 33 Greenwood Villas, Lower Farnham Road, Aldershot. Born in Aston Warwickshire he was single when he joined the police, height 6 feet 1 inches tall, fresh complexion, light brown hair and blue eyes.

Service:

PC Deakin’s appointment was confirmed on the 8 August 1932.

Passed sergeant’s examination on 4th September 1938.

Bill Leahy: "Sergeant Sam Deakin was promoted during the war from constable and as hostilities came to a close he volunteered to become a member of the Control Commission and act as a chief of police in Europe. He trod on a mine and was killed whilst working in the Netherlands. He was an excellent young man."

Allied forces entered the Netherlands on 12 September 1944. Airborne operations later that month established a bridgehead at Nijmegen and in the following months coastal areas and ports were cleared and secured. It was not until the German initiated offensive in the Ardennes had been repulsed that the drive into Germany could begin. Most of those buried in Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery were Canadians, many of whom died in the Battle of the Rhineland, when the 2nd and 3rd Canadian Infantry Divisions and the 4th Canadian Armoured Division took part in the drive southwards from Nijmegen to clear the territory between the Maas and the Rhine in February and March 1945. Others buried here died earlier or later in the southern part of the Netherlands and in the Rhineland. The cemetery contains 2,610 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, and nine war graves of other nationalities. Within the cemetery stands the Groesbeek Memorial, which commemorates by name more than 1,000 members of the Commonwealth land forces who died during the campaign in north-west Europe between the time of crossing the Seine at the end of August 1944 and the end of the war in Europe, and whose graves are not know.
