Tracing old Gunners

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by django_strikes, Feb 25, 2011.

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. Righto Arrse history buffs. Bare with mother-in-law's partner's Dad used to be a gunner. He knows he served in India and then Burma, prob attached Indian Civil Service. Definitely served in Bulford and at Larkhill. Reached Captain, served in war and his CO at one point was the actor Nicholas Phipps. What I don't know (because he doesn't), is what units and when - I'd like to find out more.

    How do I best do this? RA library at Firepower? Historical Second at Larkhill?

    Any ideas and/or help gratefully received!
