    Hello, I noticed your list of names for 589 Coy RASC and thought you might be interested in their. It’s a letter doing the rounds on the Burma research and other groups as the owner is trying to trace the family of Boris Pharo of 589 Coy RASC so they can return this letter to them.
    My father was 387 Coy RASC, amphibious dukw’s so I don’t have any link to 589.
    Hope you find this interesting.

    yes, thank you. Even though I have my fathers service records, the war diaries and lots of other information, there is always one more piece of information which crops up. I am so proud of my father and 387 Coy and what they achieved. Thank you x
