RA Family history search

#1
I am trying to find out some history on my grandfather - He served during the second world war in the Royal Artillery. I have no idea which unit but believe he COULD have been air defence of some kind. I know he served in North Africa at some point and belive he may have been a dispatch rider. Did the RA have dispatch riders? His name was Stanley Forrest. Any help or guidance in the right direction would be helpful.

Reference Dispatch Riders, yes the RA did have them. PM me an e-mail address and I will send you a document explaining how to research RA personnel history.

I too would be interested in finding out more; my grandfather was TA during WW2 in a HAA battery and his father had been a driver in the RHA during WW1 in, I think, 263 Brigade.

Cheers
