Hi all, My never ending search for my father in law's wartime service has taken new twists. A breakthrough at Christmas showed me his birth name(Dominic Cunningham Casey not Dominic Michael Stringer as previously thought) and his wedding certificate. Here it states, "gunner RA now on War Service". I have tried RA records and they do not show either name. I know he was at Singapore and escaped successfully, yet he never rejoined the RA. Am I being logical in thinking that he ought to have been registered either AWOL or as a deserter? Without any service number is there any way to trace this? I have tried MOD but with the information I have they are not being terribly helpful. I thought if there were lists of deserters I could research I might find a name that connects with his family. Suggestions gratefully received.
