Hello all , is it possible to establish from service records whether a person volunteered or was conscripted? I'm researching an Irish citizen (my Grandad) who served in the Royal Engineers during WW2 and trying to establish the above. They arrived in the UK in 1939 and enlisted August 1944. I was always led to believe that he volunteered (which may be the case) but recently found out that Irish citizens who had lived in the UK for more than two years could be conscripted. I'm curious as to whether it's possible to confirm this either way. Thanks. Mac.
