    Hmmm, The title of Military Secretary was held by General Sir Colville Weymiss (1942-1946) or Lieutenant General Sir Fredrick Browning (1946-1948) during the time this letter was written but it doesnt look like either of their signatures on it Neil

    Yes, I can see what you mean...but maybe this post was held by more than one individual?

    Whoever signed this seems to be a Brigadier (so not a General at all), as shown by the "Brig (R)" at the end of the signature. I would guess that it was signed on behalf of the Military Secretary to the Secretary of State for War (which was indeed either Weymiss or Browning in 1946) by a Brigadier on his staff.
