    Hiya

    Hoping to shed some light onto which branch of the Royal Signals my Father joined.
    He enlisted in July 1939 in Dunblane, Straight from a Boarding School for Sons of serving Soldiers.
    My Grandad had been in the Black Watch and K.O.S.Bs
    My dad had been involved in the D Day landings as a signalman - There had been mentions of being involved in the Funnies ( adapted tanks) etc.
    I have his Soldiers Service and Pay Book, however I can't see where it says which Royal Signals he was in, God those folks could write small too LOL
    Anybody know which branch of the Royal Signals operated from Dunblane?

    Cheers

    Carolyn

    Thank you for this link, will try and apply for this asap. Why isn't it written in his brown service record and Pay Book? My Grandad has a similar one with it all in!!

    As a rule WW2 Paybooks usually only list the cap badge (regiment) rather than the specific unit of that regiment.
