    Hi, I am researching my late Father's Army career from 1945 to 1957. He enlisted in the Royal Artillery in London in March 1945 & saw post war action during the Malayan emergency having been posted to Singapore in Feb 1948, returning to the UK in early 1951. At this time the only document I have is his regular army service book, which, unfortunately provides very little in the way of his career, postings, regiment etc. I have a few photo's, which I'll post. I'm looking for any information regarding which regiment he served in, the locations in the photographs, which troopship he would have travelled out to Singapore on, in fact anything that can place him or his regiment during the period March 45 to Jan 1957. I know it's a big ask, but I have to start somewhere.

    Thanks in advance I appreciate all the help I can get.

    Your best bet would be to apply to MOD for his service papers. Cost £30 and takes a few months but will answer your question.

    Sorry can't post a link to MOD site.

    Good Luck.
