    i have my grandads "soldiers release book,it states, "private Bethel 269 Pioneer Corps 7MDY". Can anyone give me any information regarding this information. He was born 9 November 1910. His record of service states his service was 16.1.1941-14.4.1946. Does anyone know him or recognise the details & tell me what he did whilst in the army. thank you.

    Unfortunately, his Army Book X801 (Soldier's Release Book) only shows his unit at the time of his demob. It does not give a history of his service. You would need to try and get hold of his army records from the Ministry of Defence, which they will only release to, or with the consent of, his legal next of kin.
