    During research on a relative I have a letter dated 12 November 1941 written in Keith. I can find no record of a barracks there during WW2. Anyone know of one there?
    The unit was 127 (Highland) Field Regt RA & I also can't find where they were prior to embarkation for Egypt in 1942 as part of 51 Division. I'm assuming it was somewhere in the Moray area.

    Edit to say pre-war when part of 9 Scottish Infantry Division they were based with RHQ in Leven and Batteries in Arbroath & Dundee. My relative was with the Dundee Battery but the letter I have was written by the CO so I assume RHQ moved from Leven.
     
  2. Old TA hall is prewar OB no doubt it was used by other units during the war. Will ask the PSI there for local knowledge.
