    In January 1943, the 6th Battalion left by 3 trains from Ascot & Sunningdale in Berkshire for Clydebank. They were to leave the UK and sail for North Africa on the HMT Sobieski. I found a nominal roll of all Officers and men who left the UK and have posted the pages below:-

    Thanks Elsie. I've decided to start researching all Battalions of the Lincolns in WW2, as this is the Regiment my Father was called up to in 1940. As nominal rolls are not that common, it's great to be able to make this information available.

    Looking through the service numbers for the 6th Lincolns, I found a man who had a number 4 higher than my Dad. By chance, luck, whatever you call it, Dad stayed in the 7th Battalion, which converted to RA/LAA in 1941 and a number of guys went to other Lincoln Battalions. Luckily Dad and his RA Regt stayed in the UK and went to NWE in June 44. Dad was to meet and marry Mum on the way.

    Cheers - Rob
