I have recently obtained my father's service record and am now trying to make sense of it! He enlisted on 2nd May 1940 and went to I coy, 14 TTB (Technical Training Battalion?), then J coy 14 TTB followed by 16 Details Battalion before posting back to 14 TTB, all within a month. He enlisted as a painter and decorator and appears to have been retained as such until 1942, when he went on a welding course. I know he spent some time at Bordon in Hants on the military railway and later postings show him with 1 Railway Training Coy, 7 Railway Battalion and 602 Railway construction Company. Does anyone know where all the above units/sub-units were located in 1940 to 1942 and what he would have done as a painter and decorator in wartime. Any help will be gratefully received. Regards to all you founts of knowledge. Steve Gray.
