    Not yet, but a few of us are working on it. If there are any you're after, post the service numbers on here.

    Cheers Gelert the info on batches every second Thursday was interesting as it backs up a pattern I noticed before Day of enlistment - Random observation | WW2Talk as you can see from that thread I have a few examples of the Enlistment notices, with Horn and his being 2 weeks late it did get me wondering if he managed to get a small deferment - whether official or not

    Mr Jinks I had wondered about a potential block for inter service transfers as when I checked the 1st of the 3 (Cartwright) he was an RAF to Army transfer so thought I may have found something but the other 2 had nothing to show where they had come from
