Hi,
I just received my Dad?s paperwork from MOD. It states he was in 45 RM CDO in ww2. How do I find out which troop he was in? On some paperwork it says class A. Could that mean troop A?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Jackie

Jackie without seeing the page my thought would be Class 'A' may well be referring to his release from service to the Reserve List based on fitness. Age and Service Groups would also be shown as A&SG or A&G with a number. Troop numbers are unlikely to be shown on Service Records.

Jackie
Can you post all the documents that might help.

All Marines were released from divisions so the Coy short for company would be within a div, where they discharged from.

Could also be an old form used in the process.

Your dad has a Portsmouth division number which is close to my grandads number he was PO/X111957

PO/x was a Ports div number for a hostilities only marine.

Check out the troop photos in the gallery, it?s worth a try.
