    Hi im trying to find out more about my grandfathers role during and after the war.
    I know he was injured in italy and moved back to train others in warminster, he later moved onto Bovington.

    I have posted some documents that may help with information.

    Thank you.

    57 HTR is Heavy Training Regiment. As mentioned obtaining a copy of his service records will reveal all his units, injuries, where he served etc.

    It's a training regiment rather than a fighting regiment so not many are interested in such things, many prefer things like men jumping out of perfectly good aeroplanes etc.
