Hi, First time I've posted here ! Not sure if I've posted in the right place. My father served in the Royal Artillery as part of a 25 -pounder crew from 1941 to the end of the war after initially joining the King’s Shropshire Light Infantry in July 1940. I have recently obtained his service record (see the 2 attachments) and I’ve been trying to put this together with what I already know. My father was never one to talk about the realities of what went on other than his more humorous experiences, hence me posting today. North Africa He served predominantly in the 146 Field Regiment in North Africa from December 1942 to July 1943 but seemed to spend some time in hospital from July 1943 to November 1943. I have no idea why he was in hospital as this was never discussed. From a discussion with an older cousin however, they believe he was in hospital in Durban at some time (106 SA GH ?). Durban was somewhere he mentioned when I was a child but I assumed it was as a stopover en-route from the U.K to Egypt. Italy In February 1944 he was posted to the 22 Field Regiment and at this point was involved in the Italian Campaign. My father did mention Monte Cassino which I was led to believe he was involved in. The entry in his service record is not very easy to read after this point. It looks like he attended training at RATD(?) from July to September 1944 but then there is an entry that seems to suggest another hospital stay in November 1944. Greece At some point he then served in Greece, I think from January 1945, again I the 22 Field Regiment before returning home in December 1945. Sorry for the long post, but if anyone can assist with what those units were involved with in those theatres around that time I’d be most grateful. Because of the current restrictions I don’t think the regimental diaries are accessible.
