Sapper History


My paternal grandfather died a couple of years ago & never spoke much of his time in Service. We've got his old books etc and he served with 3 Airborne REs. I am trying to do some research into what he did, where he served etc. Can anyone point me in a good direction - other than away?
I have contacted the Airborne Engineers Assn as he was a member - they are asking at their meeting for me.
I am also going through the Records Office for Service Records - he never even kept his medals! There is some serious history and - as I am serving - I feel honour-bound to find out what the old bugger did to ensure I wasn't taught German at school! Cheers.
