    Hello,
    How do we know where Captain Murray Walker of the Royal Scots Greys was in August and September 1944 ?
    What was his function in this regiment ?

    Thank you in advance for your answers.

    Yours sincerely.

    I never knew MW was in the Greys. Couldn't have been many awkward silences in the mess! :)

    Good evening, it's while consulting your answers that I realize my mistake.
    I started from the following text, accompanying the photographs posted earlier: Captain Murray Walker of the 4th Armoured Brigade, Sherman Tank commander 1944 .
    there were other armoured units at 4th armoured brigade.
    What unit are we talking about? 44 RTR? 3/4 CLY or other ?

    Cordially

    In both photos he is wearing the Scots Greys cap-badge so it is likely that he was serving with his regiment. He could however have been with HQ 4th Armd Bde. A check of the list of officers in the war diaries would prove this either way - sadly I cannot help with their provision. It would be very unlikely that he would have been serving with 44RTR and 3/4CLY.
