My father was in the Royal Artillery during WW2, that was until he got transferred to the East African Army and sent to Nairobi to learn Swahili. An interesting move on the British Army’s part as he was a bricklayer who hadn’t travel outside of Hampshire until he got his call up papers !! Anyway I digress…..
Find My Past has the nominal rolls of more than 16,500 military medals, which were awarded to members of the Royal Regiment of Artillery from WWI to the Falklands War.
These records could provide you with fascinating information about your ancestors’ military service, including the unit they served in, the type of service and details of the award itself.
They also have available for searching 21,400 Royal Artillery honours and awards for the period 1939-1946. The awards were given to officers and men of the Royal Regiment of Artillery for their gallantry and dedication during WWII. These records are a nominal roll of those awards.
So if you think your ancestor was in the Royal Artillery this could be a treasure trove of information.
