    Researching my Grandad, here are a few details

    Record of Service

    6849357 PTE JAC Fullegar

    KRRC 15/03/1940 to 26/04/1943
    Middlesex Regiment 27/04/1943 to 21/11/1946

    North Africa 02/05/1943

    Believe he was in HQ Coy, we have a picture of a Regimental Christmas dinner with this information on.

    Can anyone help or guide me to find out his movements/battle engagements and why he ended up in Austria rounding up War Criminals?

    do you have the full service records?

    Also a few members on here copy war diaries from Kew at a reasonable rate.

    What will the war diaries actually inform me of? Personnel movements of specific people or generalised information about the Regiment?

    Applying for service records at the moment.
    I have documents and photos given us a rough idea of his movements during the war.

    What a small world. My Granfather was in the 7 K.R.R.C. & the 2/7 MX he ended up being in "B" Sp Group in the Anzio campaign.

    7 K.R.R.C Got disbanded so thats why he ended with the Middlesex. You are a lucky chap. I've got every war diary of 2/7 MX from 43 till the end of 45. I will contact you about sending them over. Something may be wrong here, you have forgot to mention Palestine.Lets see his service records first.
    Regards

    Sicily, i could be wrong here, but i think it was only a platoon of "C" Coy mortars of 2/7 MX that was in Sicily. Attached to a brigade of the 51st Highland Division? I will check it out.
