    Default Help on my Relatives history

    Hi guys

    I thought it would be nice to research my nan's brother in law, who spoke to me about the war when I was small and left me his belt and medals in his Will

    I have scanned a copy of his Service & Pay book

    Is there anyway I can find out what unit & battles he would have been in?

    He told me he was in the RA (which he left me his lapels) and was on the wheeled artillery (like howitzers)

    Any help on how or where to find the info would be great.





    Many thanks

    Jim

    Sadly not. Other than a long wait before this kind of info becomes public.

    Cheers, Ad.
