    Hello all.........

    I am researching a Temp Captain 138406 P.W.A. PETTY of the Royal Berkshire Regiment who received a Mention in Dispatches in 1946. [L.G. 9.5.46]. In a section on his Medal Card where it states 'By Whom recommended' it reads '8 P.D. BURMA'. Can anyone please assist me in establishing what the 8.P.D. BURMA stands for. I am trying to find out if he got the MID in one of the two Royal Berks Battalions in Burma in 1945, or was he detached to another unit. [The Regt history gives his initials as W.G. which might be a printers error]

    Any assistance or pointers will be gratefully received.

    Regards
    Farmersboy
