AAC Attached

Discussion in 'Aviation' started by strings, Dec 4, 2006.

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. Can anyone please provide any information about a 2756894 Pte William Easson Snaddon who was AAC attached from the Black Watch over the dates of 01/04/44 to 15/11/45. As he died recently and his family would love to know a little bit more on his war service with the AAC.(Presumed Army Air Corps as his pay book has an entry stating AAC attached over these periods)

    Kindest regards

  2. Are sure it's AAC and not ACC?
  3. Strings,

    The Army Air Corps as you know it only came to being in 1957 and therefore the chap your enquiring about would not be on our books. I can tell you however that during the 2nd World war the Army Air Corps was the collective name used to refer to Airborne Forces which included the Parachute Regiment and the Glider Pilot Regiment. Both those units have their own websites etc and I hope they can help.

    I also wonder if the Black Watch were assigned as Glider Troops during the period that you mention?

    Good luck with the research.
  4. Cheers lads:)
  5. 2BW converted to a parachute battalion in the latter part of WW11 , this was as part of the India command.
