    I don't have a clue as to which unit he served in. I thought of looking at the war diary references at Kew to see which country both Regiments were serving, but they finish in 1946 when most were disbanded.

    I've e-mailed CWGC again, so as to save you duplicating the effort. Will update this thread and yourself when I hear back.

    Cheers - Rob
