224 Light Anti Aircraft training Regiment Aberystwyth photograph 1942

Discussion in 'United Kingdom' started by ShaunColdicutt, May 1, 2016.

  1. I have been researching a Sergeant (John W Lance) who spent the war rising through the ranks in LAA regiments.He joined in 1939 and by 1943 had been posted to quite a few different Light anti aircraft regiments.It has taken me almost seven months researching his life during the war from start to finish and during this time, I have come to realise how important the use of sharing photographs has been.

    I was lucky enough to find pictures of him in Germany in 1945. This would not have been possible if it wasn't for the relatives of John's comrades and their willingness to share such personal images.

    Therefore I have obtained consent from his family to share a picture on this forum with the intention of helping others locate relatives and possibly even contact me with any other pictures they have.

    The photograph attached was taken in 1942 in Aberystwyth.
    On the reverse of the photograph it say that it is taken by ???ACKFORD&SON PHOTOGRAPHERS ABERYSTWYTH.

    Research has led me to believed that during 1942, John was posted to 224 LAA training REGT RA of which was based in Aber at the time.

    If you recognise anyone in this photograph, or have any information, feel free to post below.
