hi all, yep just got the ol mans record. he told me he was court marshalled in peace time and then called up in 1940 but jesus!....all his record says is 'awarded 14 days..blah blah. I think hes lucky they didn't shoot him! lol theres a stamp on record ' transferred under the provisions of ACI626 of 1939 to' queens r r HOFOR A.A.1981. I know when called back up he went in the hamps reg then this transfer was to the queens royals [west kent]. thing is was this a compulsory transfer? he served in india in peacetime and then Burma with the queens[still getting nicked frequently alas] also apart from Colchester nick where he done some time, would he have done lengthy time in india or would he do that after being shipped home? thanx, jim.
