    I am helping a relative to research his fathers war history , he was a fitter with the Royal Armoured Corps and was with the 7th armoured brigade HQ squadron from 1941 to 1945 . We have his service records.

    Would this unit have kept its own diary ? and where be the best place to find a copy?

    Any other pointers to the HQ squadron history would also be welcome.

    National Archives and without checking I would say let but they would be very admin focused and not a lot of use to what a fitter was doing except where the unit was on a day to day basis.

    Hope that makes sense? They'll probably be quite thick as well.
