Hi As you may have read in my intro page, my Grandfather was with the Grenadier Guards (3rd Bn I think? Not sure now) and I'm trying to piece together his movements from 1943 to Wars' end and a bit beyond. It's all part of my grand plan to get an adventure bike, toddle off on my own and make the trip and follow him albeit some 70-odd years later. On reading his service record, he was with the H.Bn (Home/Household Battalion?) at Chelsea Barracks until 18/07/1943 when he was 'embarked' in the UK. On 28/07/1943, he 'Dis-embarked - Entered Th.of Ops in North Africa. Posted to X(iv) list. This was same day. Other entries include: 16/11/43 - Admitted 100 Gen Hosp and posted to x(ii) list. Where was hosp? 06/12/43 - Trfr to 96 Gen Hosp, again where? 29/06/44 - Att. No.1 DP&Detn Camp on probation prior to transfer MPSC Some of the abbreviations are confusing as well. Unit: xivNA, xiiNA, xiNA, xiCMF 1D/FPB 32MP/DB SOS to BTA Just seen on front of Army Form R.103, the Corps, Unit and Army Number section in top right. We have: Grenadier Guards 3rd Bn (and Army number). This must have been the first enlistment in 1930 thru to 1937. Next is Guards Armoured Training Wing. Next 5th Bn Finally MPSC If any of the above makes sense to anyone, can I have some help please I have been to the National Army Museum and the Guards Museum in London but both seemed a bit unhelpful even though I took everything with me. Thanks in advance.
