George Alfred Sprigg

Postby John Sprigg » Wed Nov 28, 2018 1:01 pm

Hi
My father was in the Army in WW2, but i have not been able to find any records of his service, and nothing from the attached pictures to find out what regiment he was in. Any help gratefully appreciated. He was living in London at the time and given he was born in 1925 I suspect the pictures are towards the end of WW2. Thanks John

WW2 service records have not been released by MoD. You can apply for a copy here...

He doesn't appear in the Royal Artillery Attestations which are on-line.

Hello, the cap badge looks very much like that of the Middlesex Regiment, which would fit with the London connection. regards
