    Hello to you all.
    Looking for any details regarding the movements of the Middlesex Reg in Burma during WWII
    My granddad father served out there and would love to know more about his and the units movement.
    He was a major and a deputy custodian at the time. I have a picture of his office door plaque, though can anyone explain what S.O.C.A II means.

    There was only one Middlesex Regiment which had many battalions and none of these served in Burma during the ww2, at least not as infantry unit (or in any other role, I think). But he could easily served in any other unit there.

    White1 is the group photo of 95 Party, 3rd Training Battalion Royal Engineers on the shelf also connected with your grandfather? Is there any badge on the beret on the portrait photo?

    No Middlesex battalions in Burma, I'm afraid.

    My granddad was in the Middlesex Regiment at the beginning of the war. I'll have to check with my aunt, but I don't think he changed regiments and he was definitely in Burma in 1945-6

    Not in the Middlesex Regiment, he wasn't.
