william George Daniels 3.png[/attachment]Can anyone help me identify the regiment in the attached photographs please? I assume that the shorts are an overseas uniform.

Many thanks

I hadn't seen these pics when I posted earlier. Sorry. The top pic is an overseas uniform. Most probably Africa as the chap is wearing them Africa star ribbon with a number 1. The bottom pic could be R.A.S.C cap badge but it is unclear, the medal bar is the 39-45 star, Africa star with a number "1" on it which denotes a 1st army bar enitilement and then what appears to be the Italy star.

Hi Jethro

Thank you for the information, every little bit helps to form part of the bigger picture and areas of where to look next. I have attached another photo of William taken at the same photo studio as the one in the overseas uniform and this one shows a badge on his shoulder, wondered whether this would help in identification.

The shoulder patch appears to be the 78th Division "Battleaxe", they were certainly in north africa. Might lead to something of more use!
