Quite possibly there is already an answer to this question on the forum! From my father's records relating to his national service in the RASC / Catering Corps - I can see that he embarked on 13 Feb 1942 after training at Dorchester and Aldershot. I think I have narrowed his troopship down to the 'Nea Hellas' which left from Glasgow that day, sailing to Port Tewfik via the Cape. After disembarcation on 11 April 1942 he was posted to various units in the Middle East before being 'struck off strength' in February 1946 - his total time away being 4 years and 13 days. My question is, when and by what means of transport did men get home from the Middle East at the end of the war? The journey there took several weeks, so I am curious as to how they all got back.
