    Do you know what unit or units he was in during WW2? I'm assuming he was part of 52 Division but that's around 10,000 men at a guess.

    Edit

    I see he was cap badged Royal Signals but you'd still need to narrow it down further. He may have been with 52 Div Signals or a Brigade HQ. May be even a Infantry or artillery regiment.

    These are great artifacts. I find documents, such as your grandfather's, a true glimpse into the time period. Thanks for sharing. Interesting stuff.

    The attachments to post #9 are more likely to be from your grandmother rather than grandfather. They refer to an female private in the ATS

    sorry for the late responces my grandfather after the war was based at iserlohn with the 1st corps signals he was also the pianoist at the dance nights in iserlohn the attachment #9 my grandmother was to young to fight in the war but from what we have found out he was seeing somebody in the ats who used to sing when he played the piano. there was a big family falling out as they wanted to take it further but she was a different religion so this didnt happen and married my grandmother after this
