    Hey,
    Is there anyone out there also interested in 43 RTR (1942/43). Looking for some allies who may have any photos or information on these guys?

    Thanks
    Steve

    Morning Steve - My Father Edward Peacock passed away in July 17 and he was a member of the 43rd. He joined in Sept 43 I have his Soldiers release book from July 47 and also a photo of himself and a handful of I suspect his troop in B Sqn as well as their punks wallah he named everyone on the back as wel as their home town/ city. He hold me loads of anecdotal stories of their time in India after 1945 but official records don't seem to exist Regards - Dominic

    Hi. As an ex RTR soldier I couldn't but notice your profile pic is of the scots greys, ( now known as the Scots dragoon guards). Did he serve on the Scots and RTR ?
