These were my father’s, Sergeant 6468560 Gilbert F Anthony, 15 Troop, C Squadron, 56th Reconnaissance Regiment. He served throughout from Glasgow to Austria.
To start at the beginning this is Volume 1 Number 1, I had to post in two parts, as I couldn’t get it to upload in one go.
Occasionally the journals have notes written in i.e. page 18 of this edition, which says “C Sqn”, also the list of decorations on page 46 has many names underlined – my father did these so my educated guess is that these references are almost certainly to be 56 Recce.

How many of the Reconnaissance Journals do you hold? There is another member on here who has them all and maybe persuaded to upload the ones you are missing. There are 23 in all with the 23rd being a roll of honour edition.

I'm really enjoying the Recce Journals and especially liked the article 'FROM A N'LAND FUSILIER REGT'; which is about 'The 3rd (R.N.F.) Recce Regiment' (ex-8th Battalion, Royal Northumberland Fusiliers).
I look forward to more postings.

Sorry, no No.2
Looking at these. I think I can confirm that the underlings in these are in fact related to the 56th as under the awards section. My grandad's name is underlined and he was in the 56th (now coming up to his 92 birthday).
Once I have a working scanner, I will upload the 4 copies of the 56 recce's comrades association newsletters I have (1 from 1991, 92, 94 & 95) riginally sent by W croucher and L p smart (I have the original envelopes as well with te regiments stamp on them!£
