    A page from Royal Artillery attestations, a pity I couldn't find anything else.

    Attestation year was 1938.

    Brilliant stuff guys and really appreciate your efforts. Does this document indicate L/Sgt Eric Francis Child was discharged from the Royal Artillery in 1945? Cheers Tim.

    Mate, I read it as transferred to the field branch of the territorials 25/12/45 and discharged in 1954 after reaching the age limit. So yes, discharged from the regular army 1945 and transferred to the TA but that's only what I'm thinking, so I could be wrong.
