Royal Engineers bomb disposal

Recommended Posts

 

Here’s a group I recently bought directly from the soldier’s family along with his trade badge and veterans association badge.

 

He first served in Norway and then bomb disposal in London before going to France. He was injured by a blast in London but not having his service record I can only go on information passed on by the family.

 

Anyway, I personally think it’s a cracking group to a very brave man.

Yes indeed I do Jerry. I'm hoping the records go online sooner rather than later but won't hold my breath.

The issue box with name and address, slip, medals, trade badge and vets association badge came together with his father-in-laws Princess Mary tin. At first I wasn't sure who the Imperial Veterans Association badge belonged to but have since found that the factory address on the reverse was new in 1944.

Perhaps you could ask the family to apply if you pay the fee?

No I'll just wait a while besides, although he shouldn't be difficult to find, the family didn't know his service number.
