    A few photos here of my late Father that have come into my possession during his time in the Royal Artillery WW2 .
    No dates and in some case difficult to tell whether 116th or 92nd.
    I will try to get them sharpened up some time (but not coloured!)
    Any info please add

    thought they might be of interest.

    They're great pictures, Clive and I'd be really interested in any further information if they are 92nd LAA.

    In the fifth picture down, I wonder if the round symbol on the soldier's sleeve is the red rose of Lancashire, as worn by 92nd LAA?

    This was to indicate that they were originally a Lancashire battalion, the 7th Loyals.

    Hello Tom
    nothing at all on the back assume its UK so it would be 116th LAA (my Father looks a lot younger)

    regards
