Hi all, I hope you are able to help me in deciphering my late-uncle's WW2 Service records (Uncle Jim served in India/Burma with 2 West Yorks from 1945-47, although he appears to have fallen sick and ended up remaining in Burma after the Battalion had moved on to Java and Singapore). Reading other posts have helped in my understanding of the 'x' codes on the records, which appear on my uncle's record. My questions on the attached Army Form B102 are as follows: 1. The entry dated 9 March 1945 - what is 'RP BAY' or 'RP BAF'? I thought it might have been a convoy code, but it is back to front if he was moving from the UK to Bombay. 2. The entry dated 8 August 1945 - is 'ASC' Army Selection Centre (I would not think it is Army Service Corps otherwise it would have said RASC)? And if so, where would that have been? I am also unsure if the writing after ASC is either 'x(4)' or 'z(4)', or, whether it is the code x(4) and the clerk who wrote the entry has placed a 'v' as an insert for the next line. 3. The entry dated 8 September 1945 - I don't know if this says 'Ind 2w' or something else? Like a lot of readers of this forum, Uncle Jim never applied for his campaign medals after the War (although he did have a ribbon bar with 39-45 Star, Burma Star, War and Defence Medal). I have applied for and received his War and Defence Medal, but the MOD Medal Office don't believe he was in Burma before 2 September 1945, so won't budge unless I can prove he was in country before 2 Sept 45. But looking at his record now I don't think he was in India for the 180 days required for the 1939-45 Star. I would therefore be grateful if anyone could provide their opinion on this (I have applied for my uncle's medical records and I am waiting for these in the hope they may shed light on his locations when hospitalised). As a final question - Uncle Jim had also served in the RAF Regt from 42-44 in addition to his Army service, and I note on his records he also had Home Guard service (yet to apply for this record). Noting that war service counted double towards the Efficiency Medal, would Home Guard service also count towards this, noting the Home Guard could receive the same medals as the Army? Many thanks in advance for your help.
