    Scott, is your Grandfather in either of these photos & is there some handwriting on the back?

    This next one is the same group of four and on the back it says.
    North shields 70307

    The gent on the right of the last two pics has the same rank as the officer in the first pic,not sure if it's the same person or not,can anyone tell me what that rank is please?

    Scott.

    The 67 Regt RA book arrived safely. Thank you.

    The rank slide is not a rank slide. That is not a pip.

    Regards

    It is two triangles joined together. It could well be a white triangle and a blue triangle.

    If I am right, the badge is the tactical recognition flash for the Royal Corps of Signals. Each Arty Regt had R SIGNALS troops attached to run their communication systems back to headquarters further back.

    Regards

    Sorry for the late reply but thanks again Frank.

    One question i have after my google fu has failed.

    My g'dad received the rank of Bdr in the TA before the war started.
    Why during the war would he be listed as W/Bdr? Is that due to him being ranked in the TA and not the regulars?

    Cheers.

    W is War Service.

    Is that not a rank you hold for the war? This is what's confusing me as he was a Bdr before the war started.

    That would really be a shame:excl: You can pick your mates & all that. History can't be changed.. I speak from experience when it comes to family members in the Second World War. I've enjoyed taking part in this thread.. Criminal for parts of it to be deleted. I'm sorry to hear that you wish these posts to be deleted.

    Regards
    Stu.
