Apologies for the vagueness of this post. My father was a Staff Sergeant in the REME and posted to India in October 1943 on draft RDGG. I have his Service Records which, disappointingly, lack a lot of the detail that I'd hoped for. In January 1944, he was Taken On Strength (TOS) at 'No.1 India Base W/S'. In July 1944, he was 'Discharged from Hospital' (he'd contracted 3 tropical diseases) and subsequently repatriated to the UK at the end of the year. So, my first question is can anyone tell me where No.1 India Base W/S (which I assume means Workshops) was located? My father told me that he started (and finished) in Deolali Transit Camp but had also been posted to the North East of India and over the border into Burma. He did receive the Burma Star. Can anyone suggest any other source that might help me locate him during the first 6 months of 1944? I must say that, if his Service Record doesn't have it, I'm not very hopeful. But thanks in advance for ANY tidbits of information.
