    I have the army records of my uncle who died in ww2. He was mobilised from the reserve in September 1939 and went to France on 8 th June 1944 while he was in RHU, which I believe was Reinforcements Holding Unit. Before he was posted to RHU he was put on the "Y"List. Can anyone please tell me what that list was? Also any background info on RHU would be useful.
    Thank you, Dave

    It has been discussed on our sister forum apparently. See:
    Info on Y List please!
    Brian sated there: "... 'The army Y List was composed of 'non-effectives' with a listing of 1 to 8 sick, detention , leave pending discharge etc'..."

    Thank you. In my case it was Y List (C) and it did happen soon after he suffered a minor injury.so it makes sense

    Thank you for your help so far. Now I have another question. My uncle was in 2nd Batallion Lincolnshire regiment. In early 1943 he attended a 3 week course at the E&SE Command W T School. Does anyone know where that was please? Does the WT stand for War Training?
    He attended Course No.D31and obtained Q1 (D O 44/43). What does all that mean please?
    Dave
