Apologies for the meandering start in advance... All started with fancying a 'family crest' tattoo. My attention to detail annoyed me enough to try and see if I could link our family to it. Lessons on heraldry and crests meant that there isn't such an overall thing... but I digress. My family history lead me down a military history route. I had always known that my stepgrandfather was in 12th Lancers, so I started researching them, all of the locations (Dunkirk, North Africa, Italy) tallied up, so I carried on. A while in, I found documentation alluding to GHQ Liaison Regiment, Phantom. This has sent me down a fantastically obscure and interesting rabbit hole, starting with the British Air and Military missions with the BEF. The fact that there are 6 squadrons, made up of 6 patrols each, all attached to different units at any one time has made pinpointing his route extremely difficult, especially as I'm yet to find his patrol and his starting squadron. 4000 pages of archive records and I'm still struggling to pinpoint him yet, with only 1 mention of him thus far, but finding more and more detail for when/if the magic document appears!
