Hi Steve. Thanks for the revised update. I think it is important for me to try and complete this mission re the war diaries. I know exactly what he did through his war diaries of the 270th .F.C. R.E.this covers 1943 to 1946. It would be great If I / you can find out everything he done from August 39 till 26 /2 /43 when he arrived in North Africa. Near enough 4 years which will be the missing link! It would be great to find out if he actually got onto Inchmickery Island in the River Forth, especially as I live in Edinburgh with the River Forth and the Islands 5 minutes away by car. If I don't go for all the potential war diaries I will never be happy thinking I may have missed something to complete his journey! Can you please give me a potential cost to get what we can for the weeks /months /years he was involved 1939 - 1943 if this is a service you offer? With regards to the questions above, hopefully the downloads will supply the information I requested.:- 1. Attestation of J. Guthrie into the TA. (too big to send, will try something different) 2. " " " " " " " 8. Soldiers Service & Pay Book. 10. " " " " " 13. Soldiers Release Book. CLASS "A" (too big to send, will try something different) My Dad thought he was off to France, when the train left the Waverly Station Edinburgh with the troops on board. He was most surprised when the train went North and they were all de-trained at North Queensferry and billeted in Carlingnose Army Camp adjacent to Carlingnose Point which had the gun battery overlooking the Forth.I cant find anything about Carlingnose Army Camp, only the gun battery, if you have nothing else to do I would be grateful to find out anything about this. Dad always said that they were shipped over every day to Cramond Island, but would be great to find id he was billeted in the camp or on the Islands? Regards Gordon.
