    Hi All

    I have a Photograph of a relative wearing RE Shoulder titles and a Northamptonshire Regt Cap Badge. I believe he was 4th Bn (TA) Pre War.

    I understand that he may have transferred to a RE Search Light Unit? Possibly RA after that.

    An anecdote from a relative said that he never went further than the Isle of Wight!

    Can anyone elaborate on the insignia combination and What,where this unit may have been.

    I am abroad at the moment and cannot scan and up load a descent photo. Stan enl pte.jpg

    in 1939 the original 4th Btn Northampton Btn converted to 50th AA Btn RE.
    A new 4th Btn was also formed in 1939 and went into the Line
