    my late father (who would have been 100 next year) served with this regiment during the war.
    His name was Captain Edward John Walton

    I lost all his war flight books etc (during messy divorce) have found a few bits about his war years was hoping someone just might know what his regiment did during the war.I have a few memories telling me he was in India and also Iceland,but cant recall much else

    In a piece i found ,it states he was number 15 patrol commander,what does this mean?

    Many thanks for any help, i think the site is great keeping the memory of all these brave men alive

    thanks again

    15 Patrol Commander may be a typo or similar to No. 15 Platoon Commander ?

    Hello NWalton and welcome to the forum.

    Have a look at this link (from Trux pages on this site).
    http://ww2talk.com/forums/topic/23673-21-army-group-headquarters/

    Search for text "Phantom" (about 90 percent down on this very long page).
    Then find "Patrol" and you will see the organization (strength, trades, armament, vehicles) of a patrol and some more information.

    Cheers

    There is more information (the equivalent of 20 pages worth) in the Royal Armoured Corps section of the Trux 21 Army Group section of the forum. Although concerned with liaison and signals it was a part of the RAC.

    Unfortunately all of this refers to 1 GHQ Liaison Regiment in NW Europe. 2 GHQ Liaison Regiment was in Italy. Basic tasks and organisation are similar.
