    Hi there,
    Just trying to do some family tree history, my grandfather was in the CRASC 20 TPT Column from September 1943, but I just wanted to find out a bit more about where he was based, which units he may have supported? When he went to France etc?
    I've got a BLA of 09/06/1944 with order details 2521/10947/44

    Any information would be much appreciated.

    Thank you

    hello Steve welcome to the forum.
    A few members on the forum copy war diaries at the National archives Kew for a very reasonable price.
    So that is another area for you to look at to assist your research.

    Historic Steve Researching 21 Army Group/BAOR post VE day

    My research is still under construction and on the major units however can help with the last two units

    255 Company (Car) RASC = Control Commission Germany/CRASC 80 Transport Column/General Headquarters Troops – Hattersheim Nr Frankfurt-am-Main to Bad Oeynhausen in Jun 46 then not listed from Jul 46 so probably disbanded

    4 x Platoons 36 Company (Army Troops) RASC = CRASC 1 Corps District Troops/Headquarters British Troops 1 Belgium Division area – no location and the last record

    If more details turn up will let you know

    Best of luck with your research
