    I am trying to research a soldier - 5568023 Pte W. Smith - who served with the 2nd Bn Wiltshire regt in Palestine around 1938/39 who was then transfered to the Gloucestershire Regt on 23.11.39 and went on to serve in Burma during WW2.

    Does anybody know how many wilts were transfered and to which Bn he may have gone to? I know the 1st and 10th Bn Gloucesters served in Burma. Any help or guidance would be appreicated,

    Can't find anything in war diary at the moment but there is mention on dates after that of men being sent back to No1 IBD as there was a surplus of first reinforcements.
