Trouble is Bazz some of the documents are not full copies, ie its difficult to read and there are areas that do not appear on the copy that are very important. Can I ask have you been through them yourself, if so what are the areas you dont understand?
It appears from a quick look at some of the documents he spent sometime with 56 Recce - as an intro - Reconnaissance Corps - Wikipedia plus we have members on here who are much more expert in that unit

Hi Bazz welcome to the forum. As you have looked at the 56 Recce Diaries I can't add much to your request. ATM I don't have the 46 Recce Diaries but in time I will have them, I'm getting 43 Recce Dairies at the moment.
Went into R A C side of forums for a broader opinion on HQ 1 m c c. And if any one could read the line above,1 m c c. As the recce where in the. R A C from 1 jan 44 till being disbanded in aug 46. Cheers Bazz
Can you post the actual image you are now querying as you have posted quite a few - some are duplicates - and it might save members time going through the images to find the one you are now talking about.
this one steve hope its ok. Bazz
It’s the same details as are in the Trade Test Box on the right hand side of this other form you’ve posted. It describes him attending, and passing, a course of instruction at Middle East School of Hygiene. No details of the course syllabus are in his records.
Hope that is what you were querying? I’ll have a look at the forms you’ve posted and see if anything unusual leaps out.
