    I have the Army Book 64 for a RAC Trooper. He was enlisted in February 1943 and has a 145***** number which is in he RAC serial used for enlistments after 1942.
    The book says he was in the RAC from then until 11.9.46 and then he was in the 3rd Carabiniers for a year. He seems to have been in India or Burma from the beginning of May 1944. He had two periods in hospital in India and was awarded the Burma Star.
    There is no indication of which unit he was in for his India/Burma service and I thought 3rd Carabiniers were part of the Royal Armoured Corps and, if so cannot see why the transfer of September 1946 was recorded?
    Can anyone help?
