    I have posted this under 'General' because I don't know what this was and can find no references to it! Can anyone shed any light on it? I have someone posted there (specifically to Keswick) as adjutant in September 1943. Many thanks if anyone can help.

    Thank you, Tony! So it would seem to be a RASC school for driver training and instruction in vehicle maintenance ?

    Thank you TD! Looking through this I assume the 'Carrier' bit in my document refers to Bren Gun Carriers.

    or their variants - getting an Aircraft carrier onto Windemere may have proved difficult

    Tony, thank you for those two citations. My chap was there in a purely administrative role but it's interesting to see samples of what was rolling past his window!
