    This "quote" from an Artillery web-site gives some idea of the scale of Rob's new venture:)

    "Over a million men served in the Royal Artillery in WW2, please don't waste your time looking for a relative's name. However, you should be able to get an idea of what they did if they served with field artillery".

    I thought only around 700,000 served in the RA.:lol:

    I don't know if this will work (I don't seem to be able to put an Excel file into this post?)...but here's Burnley's RA casualty roll which may or may not be of interest. If there's a "BEX" reference, then I've probably got a photo or obituary of the man and , if he's buried in Burnley cemetery, then I'll have a photo of his headstone (if he has one)...

    I've tried using Geoff's Search engine and it is brilliant. One problem I've encountered is how the info was typed on CWGC. A comma or a space and you don't get all the names. Maybe he can suggest a way round it. I'd be honoured to be instructed by the "Master".

    The CWGC data does contain thousands of errors in the unit field. Many of these are as you say spaces also double spaces, stray commas or just the wrong character. I have removed many of these in my index so they should not be much of a problem in searching, but please let me know if you suspect particular problems. But I think my data will never be 100% or error free.
    A number of units have variations, so don't always look for an exact match. I suspect this field was manually entered, whereas regiment was probably selected from a list so is usually accurate.

    With that number of records on CWGC, it must be impossible to get them all. I recently looked at casualties of 6 HAA for someone and wrote down the reason I did not find certain names using a regimental and battery search. I can't lay my hands on the info at the moment, so can't tell you the names. I eventually found them by date ranges for Royal Artillery, tedious, but successful in the end.

    Thanks for your comments.

    it will be a hell of job as sometimes I came accross some names in War Diaries, as well as in Regimental histories which were not or incorrect in their database

    I've already found a couple spelt differently. There are also a number missing from the RA Commemoration Book as well, which is my first source of information.

    I've already booked my place in the Assylum as I might need it by the time I finish.:lol:

    Initially a ROH Source. Then a list of war diaries. A list of Arty Histories is a good idea, but maybe already done on other sites. I've seen a list on ra39-45 for example.

    Don't forget the other parts of the world. We tend to treat other Theatres of operation as the poor relations. D-Day dodgers is a prime example of this.

    Dont forget those who served in North Africa, I have a small amount of info to contribute on LAA casualties and war diaries.

    An excellent, but gargantuan project, I fear we may see you make an early entry into the assylum !
