I have been looking at my family history for a number of years and I'm now putting an effort into the military aspects. So that they will be remembered I am writing a few pages on each of those who served. The most interesting I have are: Grandfather, Samuel Parker (1896-1987), served (possibly Hussars). His records only available at Kew. Father, LAC John Parker (1923-1979), served RAF 1940-1946. I have his military records. Great uncle, Francis Boyle (-1943), Royal Irish Fusiliers, No 3 Commando, killed in action on July 14, 1943, in Sicily. Uncle, James Semple Smith (1922-ca1998), Seaforth Highlanders. Served Africa, Sicily, Italy. My attention is for now focussed on my Father-in-law Trooper William Campaigne. I have applied for his service records and have just obtained from a family member his Service Record and Pay Book; 3 x 1939-1945 medals; 1x 1939-1945 star; 1 x Italy star (missing Africa star?) Some photographs, which I'll be happy to share. I'll post separate threads on the above army veterans, starting with William Campaigne. I only knew my father-in-law for about 5 years before he died and I would like him to be remembered. He didn't speak about his service but I know he went through some tough times. I guess I need to pick an appropriate forum, either Royal Armoured Corps or Lothian & Border Yeomanry. We are not a "military family" so I have little knowledge of how divisions, regiments and other units are assembled and how people were posted to them. Any help will be much appreciated.
