Thanks I appreciate any input
Yes I have seen the same photo that states
Officers and NCO's.
Which does make a bit of sense I'm sure he did say he did have a rank but demoted himself
According to his papers he did go AWOL a number of times
With docked pay detention etc
I have papers back this up.
Unfortunately I lost dad when he was only 67
Dont know rank
But his names sidney moore
Hi Cee just looked at that photo above and it's a totally different photo
My Dad isn't on that one
Correction just blown it up and yes there's bits missing on that one youve put up.
On my copy taken from original
There is 12 sat on floor 6 each side.
And there's no mention on this one of officers and Nco's

Sorry not 12 Para related but your father was wounded on 30 May 1940 with 2/5th Bn Leicestershire Regiment in France.
Thank you very much for that,
Didn't know he was wounded in france,as I have not looked into that regiment yet.
I did know he was wounded several times in his army career by shrapnel most of it
As he had at least 3 scars
Big one in his neck
Buttocks and back if I remember right.
If you find anything else please let me know.
Searching through his papers it appears he was at Hardwick from 1941 to when he left ringway in 1944 then onto the holding unit.
But there is a lot of colour full reading by means of AWOL , detention tried by court martial etc etc.
One thing I have found out is that the pictures of the 12th Yorkshire parachute BATTALION on para data.
The date of February 1944 is incorrect
It's more likely to be end of may 1944
When the BATTALION was together
As dad didn't leave Ringway until 13 may 1944,
And he appears on all 3 photos,
Thanks again Brithm.
P.s he was evacuated off Dunkirk beach in a fishing Boat
Probably why he joined the paras
Is there any chance you could scan and upload his service records?
Can I send them to you privately?
Either email or ?
Sure, I'll send you my email by PM (private message) on here.
