    ive managed to find some more information on my grandad,(john james thomas hollidge, known as jack)
    he was a gunner in the royal artilary,14th army under general slim.
    his army number was:892928,he was in burma from:18/4/1939 to 8/3/1946.
    does k battery feild depot make any sense? thats all i could read in his book as it is not in very good condition.he enlisted at romford.hope some one can help with some info on my grandpops.
