    Has your friend already applied for copy service records form GG RHQ? If they know for certain with which bn(s) he served and when, then the usual route after that would be War Diaries for detail or the GG Regtl History for background.

    Here's 1st Bn GG -
    War Diary, 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards, BEF - Sep 1939 to Jun 1940

    There are a few threads dotted about in Bde of Gds with bits of info about the battalion in NWE

    I was just browsing and came across this site. Post 131 mentioned about a unit being one of the first to reach a concentration camp and that rang a bell with me, so I have registered.

    My mother told me that my father, (long deceased), was sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp to help out there. Does anybody else have details of a Grenadier detachment going there?

He was a butcher in civvy street, and was transferred to the Catering Corps after getting wounded to check the meat rations , ended up a WO1.
