143 Coy TT RASC

#1
Hello,
I'm writing a book bout the 143 Coy TT RASC was in direct line of descent from 2nd Corps Troops Ammunition Coy, which was formed in mid-september 1939 at Shorncliffe Kent with Major Horton as the Officer Commanding. The German invader crossed into Belgium on 10 may 1940 and the Coy moved forward to Opwijk near Brussels but was obliged to withdraw to Dunkirk. While they waited for evacuation they lived in foxholes in the sand dunes for five days. During the evacuation there were some casulties when the boats on wich they had found refuge were attacked by enemy planes.
On 24 september 1944 the 143 Coy RASC arrived in St Gillis Dendermonde and stayed there till 26 april 1945. One of the hostfamilies was the Van Dender family and Arthur Robson, who was a driver of a Diamand T truck, promissed my mom Simonne (aged 17) I'll write you every first of the month a letter. So he did !!!! We found 58 letters of him. We still writing his son Donald. With these letters we found a bookled written by J. Sinton, it's the history and travels of 143 Coy R.A.S.C. TT and there Officer Commanding was Major Hartharn.
I'm writing that book book now buth i'm looking for the names from 180 soldiers and five officers. Can you help me, please?
