    I can only find 3 diaries for you. I'm wondering if the unit changed its name before the war ended?

    WO 166/5797 ROYAL PIONEER CORPS: COMPANIES: 811 Company. 1940 Nov.- 1941 Dec.
    WO 166/10235 811 Company 1942 Jan.- Dec.
    WO 166/14093 811 Company 1943 Jan.-Dec.

    Ref the dates you say he was with them until 1949 but discharged in 1941-Typo?

    Ref the Gordon Highlanders you would need to know the battalion he served with.
