    I am trying to find the service number for my grandfather, so I can order his service records. I have very little information to go on, but I have a copy of his diary in 1943 and I "think" he was in the

    In the diary, he mentions his movements during 1943 and he states that on 15th October 1943 he went in front of Capt. Carlton and received a C.O. which took place at 91st H.A.A. R.H.Q. On 17th October 1943 he wrote to his Mother stating that had been reprimanded by Lt. Col of the 91st H.A.A. R.H.Q.

    I believe the HAA RHQ are an Heavy Anti-Aircraft Regiment of the Royal Artillery, but I have been unable to get any further, or find info on my grandfather John Arthur Swaine or Captain Carlton.

    Any ideas on how I can get his service number or further details of his service?

    Thanks in advance

    Better off asking on WW2Talk.com (sister forum to this, same owner) as the members over have access to rather alot of records.
    I know a few chaps there can look his name up & find his army number.
