    Hello and welcome to the forum. Thanks for adding photo and info.

    Has anyone in the family applied to MOD for a copy of your Uncle's service records?
    If not, see this link for info: Get a copy of military service records
    These should provide details of transfers between battalions within regiment and also out of the regiment.

    I think he was in a different battalion when first joining up, but ended up in the 2nd battalion. The gap from 1946 to 1953 was when he joined the police force in Edinburgh. He also had a spell in the Palestinian police force. Nearelf must have been Cyprus as I remember being evacuated from there as a kid.
    He also reportedly helped out at Ravensbruck concentration camp after it was liberated, but I have yet to find any corroborating evidence of this.

    With the passing of Academy Sergeant Major Ray Huggins MBE earlier this year, it has now been determined that the concentration camp was actually Neuengamme not Ravensbruck.
