Help with some research

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. Hopefully somebody will be able to help....

    What I am after is a breakdown of the typical recruit training syllabus for the Army in the 1920's - early 30's. (week by week)

    Also I would be most grateful if any body knows where i can find examples of the various dress states worn by a Highland regiment of that period and leading up to WWII - especially dress states for Garrison duty in Singapore.

    Any additional info re the Gordon Highlanders during the period 1928 - 1942 (especially the 2nd Battalion) most gratefully received

    And before anybody says it - I have contacted the museum and they have been halpful - but cannot provide much info

    This is all in the name of research into a relative who was captured when Singapore fell and survived the railway and other horrors.

    MAny thanks
