    Hi everyone, I am doing some research on the following soldier. Charles William Barker, Royal Army Ordnance Corps.
    Does anyone have any other biographical details about this man? He was KRO in the German city of Dortmund from December 1948 onward. So Lt-Col. might have been a title he recieved when getting the post.
    There is a Lt.-Col. C. W. Barker gazetted into the Royal Army Ordnance Corps as Lt. 1 Sept. 1931 Page 5693 | Issue 33749, 1 September 1931 | London Gazette | The Gazette but I am not sure if he is the right man.
    This man later acquired the qualification and post nominals of A.M.I. Mech E. Promoted to Lt.-Col 21 December 1948, retired 15 June 1955. Unfortunately I have no idea what 'A.M.I. Mech E. 'signifies.

    Do you have any basic info on him? date and/or place of birth, parents/spouse names etc etc


    I have to say at the moment all this info is provisional and needs verification

    (169) - Army lists > Quarterly Army Lists (Second Series), July 1940-December 1950 > 1941 > Fourth quarter > Volume 1 - British Military lists - National Library of Scotland
