I came across this reference on the BBC Peoples War site http://bbc.co.uk/history/ww2peopleswar/stories/01/a8248601.shtml In it a veteran refers to joining the Y&L in 1938 'before it was converted to the Royal Artillery'. he then goes on to describe some of his war action details. I must confess to being very much a novice at research but the only reference I can find to a Y&L Battalion converting to RA is the 5th. But their subsequent action matches in no way what the gent described. Can anyone suggest sources to refer to, to try and track down what unit converted to RA that had the record he suggests? Maybe someone knows the answer already? Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks. Mods, if this post should be in a more suitable location please move it.
