Find a WW2 Officer

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. Cheers for this, going to be really useful for work! Interesting read too.
     
  2. Its an interesting site, but the information is patchy, Looked up the first officers I could think of: Lty Cols R H Bellamy and F P Barclay, successive commanders of the 1st Bn Royal Norfolk Regiment after D Day..

    No mention of bellemy, but Barclay is there, but not m,entioned as the 2IC then CO of the battalion.
     
  3. I think its a work in progress, rather than set in stone.
     
  4. Your right there, but what a brilliant reserch tool
     
  5. Damned good find there, scarletto: hours of anorak fun finding people like this - Shearer,
    William Alan Watson. Commisioned into Seaforth Highlanders, taken prisoner, sometime member of British Free Corps (!?) but considered too unbalanced by the Germans and later repatriated under a Red Cross exchange.

    Extraordinary.
