Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone able to do some digging looking into the death of the O/H's grans first husband who was with the unit at the time everything I've seen is for 1944 onwards. Casualty details CWGC - Casualty Details
  2. 20 Atk Regiment was part of 3rd infantry Division in 1941. This would have been on anti invasion duties in Feb 1941
  3. Cheers any idea where they were located etc? Not sure of the incident was on that date or wounds from a previous incident.
  4. Formed from 20th Fd Regt in 1938 and (as noted) with 3rd Inf Div throughout the war. Converted to an HAA Regt 1947.

    This link has good info on all aspects of the RA in WW2. Royal Artillery Methods in World War 2
  5. Cheers one of the other stories we heard was that he might have been in the commando's. So possibly a trg accident
  6. As you have a service number you can request further details of his service from the APC (provided you think it is worth £30 and probably a fairly lengthy wait).
