Hi My Grandad George signed an attestation paper with the Royal Engineers (?2 unit) on 10th October 1939. He was transferred to 62 coy AMPC on 1 December 1939. Is this usual? I thought the AMPC was for older men who had served in the Great War, Grandad was born in 1917. I am finding parts of his service record difficult to understand. At the moment I am particularly interested in trying to understand the fourth line of writing as it is dated 31/5/40. According to the war diary of 62coy the company departed Boulogne 23 May 1940 on the destroyer Vimiera. However, according to my Grandad ‘s note he “left Dunkirk after spending 5 nights and 6 days on the beach landed Dover England”. He has dated this entry 31 May 1940. Can anyone read line 4? Or shed any light on how my Grandad ended up in Dunkirk instead of on the Vimiera? I am interested in any information anyone has regarding 62 coy. I hope I uploaded the file Okay. Thanks to everyone who reads this.
