    I'm trying to identify the unit that Arthur Smith served with in WW2 (the name doesn't help!). I have 2 photographs which don't show much detail and although I know he served in Africa in 1940 I don't have any service record information. I'd be grateful for any help ar advice anybody can offer me. ArthurSmith050.jpg ArthurSmith049.jpg

    Not much to go on, first photo is Service Dress so pre-War through to Early war - the trousers/puttees/boots with spurs imply mounted - along with the white lanyard I'd be thinking artillery - the second photo is Battle Dress in its original format made from 1937-42, along with the FS cap gives a feel of around 1940-43 I'd say - this is probably the later taken photo so interesting to see he has "lost" his stripe - I'm struggling to work out his formation sign or cap badge unfortunately

    It was a long shot without much to go on. Thanks for your help - I'll keep looking for other pictures of the man in the family albums.
