Fantastic pictures Bill, Well spotted! "i saw my fathers name on the list on page 4" !!! You've come to the right place for a bit of help I'm sure I assume: 'ARG for UK.X(iv)' Means: ARG – Armoured replacement group http://ww2talk.com/forums/topic/23765-armoured-replacement-group/ & the UK.X(iv) is on here: XlistWW2 by Ramiles posted Nov 29, 2015 at 12:42 PM [sharedmedia=gallery:images:29356] But I may not be correct it's never wise to assume too much! You might consider getting his tracer card from Bovington, i.e. as in: http://ww2talk.com/forums/topic/37155-24th-lancers/page-3#entry684055 And his army records too from Glasgow at some stage. My own granddad's took a bit less than a month to arrive, but the time you might have to wait can vary a bit I understand, depending on how busy they are there. And they are fantastically helpful to have. Having his army number from: http://ww2talk.com/forums/topic/37155-24th-lancers/page-4#entry697299 Should be helpful, though oddly (?!) my own grandfather's army number was typographically incorrect on there: http://ww2talk.com/forums/topic/37155-24th-lancers/page-3#entry666729 As he was 7880500 not 7880506 as it said there ^_^ Unfortunately right now, I don't know anything more about "William Duncan" but SDP (Steve) might be able to help you there. I hope that you have had a chance to read some of the other 24th Lancers threads? In case any of them trigger some memories of yours re. particular things your father might have said? Anyhow the very best of luck with all your research, All the best, Rm.
