Hi, when I was a nipper my grandfather didn't really talk that much about his wartime experience. However, after his and my father's death, I inherited some of wartime letters back to my grandmother. Theres not a lot of detail in the actual content, but I do have some of his details from the posting addresses. Most of the letters were headed: 817889 BSM Bowes, E. 289/93 Hy.AA. Regt R.A. Army Post Office 4375 (this one was dated in 1942) Although I have one in 1940, where he was part of the B.E.F. in the 220/85th A.A. Regt. R.A. 817889 Bdr Bowes, E. "B Troop" 220/85th A.A.Regt RA B.E.F. France 15/5/40 And one after that when he was back in England 817889 Bdr Bowes, E. 220th AA Bty R.A. Rame Head efr Causands Cornwall 9/8/40 Finally I have a letter from 1945 817889 CSM Bowes, E. 1st BN, E / Surrey Regt. 'A' bay 8th BN. No1. I.R.T.D. C.M.F. 1st June 1945 I'd really like to learn a lot more about the operational movements of my Granda's regiment, and also about his time in the B.E.F. and what happened to him in 1945. I've only got the odd vague memories of where I was told as a kid, things like he was at Dunkirk and served in the North African campaign, possibly at Tobruk. I don't really know if he took part in the invasion of Sicily or Italy. Any information regarding the 289/93rd Hy A.A. Regt, or pointers to information sources would be very much welcomed.
