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. 2nd Battalion Royal Higlanders:

    He enlisted in the Royal Highlanders and his barraks were at Fort George in 1929.

    I am trying to get his date of birth for my geneology tree which I started recently.

    Would the regiment still have records from that time?
    I don't when he joined but I know he was 25 years old when he was there in 1929. , He may have joined at the age of 16 0r 17 in WW1 time and stayed on?
    I am not sure just guessing with his age.

    Anyway, would it be possible to track him down with just a few details?
    His name, age, and rank.

    I believe this Battalion is now known as the Black Watch?

    Thanks for any info in advance.
