I am seeking information about this unit that was formed Sept 22nd 1944 from
elements seconded from the RCA, CSC, RCEME, and the RAF. It's first
commander was Capt. J.G. Telfer of the 2nd Heavy AA . A Wilf Falconer in his
"Battery Flashes of WW II" refers to this unit and says that there was an
unpublished history produced but has no idea about it's location. My father and
uncle, Chris and Bob Vickers both served in this unit and I am interested in
the unit's operations, history, roster etc. This unit was formed to find enemy mortar
sites for targeting purposes, by tracking incoming rounds, and was disbanded at the
end of hostilities
I am grateful for the information I have already gotten from many on the
"War Diary" bulletin boards, and hope that someone out there has some
serendipitous information for me.
As my Dad used to say " War never solves anything "
