Good day to you, i am at the start of what i believe may be a long journey into trying to find out information about my paternal Grandfather who served in WW2. My understanding is that he served in the RAOC, in North Africa and then back in England in Nottinghamshire - worksop / clumber park ?. I have him being called up in May 1940, and being discharged from the Army in December 1945, with the Rank of P/S/CDR which searches on line point to him being a Conductor ? I also have reference to H.Q.9 B.A.D MEF ? Which i take to mean Base Ammunition Depot, and Middle East Force ? but is it H.Q.9 , or 9 B.A.D ? I also have a 7 digit number which i believe was his service number but am not 100% sure - 7630308 There was another number listed in notes left to me which is 30783 ? Any guidance on a way forward would be much appreciated - even if just to confirm that P/S/CDR does mean Conductor ? And that the 7 digit number is likely to be his service number ? Is the best place to start the gov.uk site, i do have a copy of his death certificate, or are there better starting points ? Any help would be much appreciated.
