    Daisy, suggest you go to a Facebook page WW2 Burma research. There’s a lady on there whose father was in 387 and can tell you a great deal about them.

    Hello, I’ve just seen this post and just had to reply. My father also served with 387 Coy RASC, amphibious dukw’s in India and Burma.
    I have been researching them for several years and have their war diaries.
    I’m now looking for the nominal rolls so that I can identify members but, I’m finding it difficult. We have 4 relatives of 387 Coy on the WW2 Burma research group and a good many photos. My father was Pte Harry Hopton T282143.

    Thank you, it was my father which led me to research his time in India and Burma. What a story this Coy has, such bravery. I now have his service records and the war diaries but, I’m looking for the nominal rolls for 387 Coy. Would you know how these are obtained. Thank you so much.

    Good evening Mary,

    With regards to the bravery of the soldiers within the Coy, you can download the original citations from TNA; I have counted 5 x Military Medals and one Military Cross. More than happy to download them for you if you would like?

    thank you very much. I do actually have the military cross and military medal citations. It was a very kind thought though x
