Army and Navy?

Postby clare2611 » Fri Oct 02, 2015 11:43 am

My Father In Law spent time in both the Army and Navy. However we have no details of service number or regiment. He was born in 1921 so only a young man when ww2 started. He was also a coal miner, would he have been a Bevin Boy?

From my limited knowledge of Bevin Boys (my father in law was one) from what you've put I don't think he would have been a Bevin Boy. I should contact the Bevin Boys Assocition. They should be able to help you.
