88 Fd Regt & Finding family members service records

Discussion in 'Gunners' started by Zarathustra, May 20, 2009.

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. Evening all,I've come in here hoping that one of you fine fellows may be able to answer a couple of questions I have, if I need to speak up just let me know :D

    I'm currently in the early stages of tracing 2 great uncles on my mother side. Both are buried at Kanchanaburi Cemetery.

    One of them was a Lance Sergent who served with 88 Fd Regt Royal Artillery.

    I've had a quick search of the web and found out that 88 Fd Regt was in 18th Div, and also with 11th Indian Div with 1 Bty with 9th Indian Div.

    Could anyone recommend any good site where i could find out more info about 88 Fd Regt?

    Also, when researching my Grandad I just nipped into Regimental HQ and spoke to the archivist. Do the RA have a central archive i could contact to find his records, or will it be a case of writing to the national archives and hoping for the best?

    Cheers in Advance Crow
