    I also have a pair from the Royal Warwickshire Regiment.

    Hi Steve

    Do you know what Battalion he served with? And if you have his details (rank, number, etc) I could do a bit of a search if you like?

    Recon my man was quite lucky then. This Regiment appears
    to have seen in many engagements.

    I remember my mates wife telling me that he had
    been through a gas attack.........

    Hi

    Well, after doing some searching it appears that his service records did not survive as is often the case. The only document I could find was his medal index card and Ade has already posted that.
    This means that in the long run it is unlikely that you could ever confirm the Battalion he served with. Though with the information regarding the gas attack I might be able too to narrow down Battalions.

    Thanks Cameron. I've yet to contact my buddy's wife to ask
    if she knows anything more about him. There is a slight
    chance that she has some paperwork.

    I know it can be difficult to find info on these men.
    Would you have access to 'war diaries' for
    the Royal Engineers.........?
    Regards,


    Steve.
