Thank you for this information, particularly the last article. I found it very informative.
Thank you all for these. I had found and read these but was wondering if I had missed any further information or websites.
Thanks Craig. I?ve done that but no success. I?ll have to wait for his service record.
I?m trying to find out more about my g uncle Bill who served in WWII. From a bible in his effects, I found the following addresses.

RM How (howitzer?) Battery - Norway
RM 8 B (Battalion?) El Tahaq, Egypt
RM 8B Force Overt - what was Force Overt?
47 Royal Marines Commando (Force Viper) Ceylon

I wondering if anyone could provide more information about what he would likely have been doing in these locations and what Force Overt and Viper were.

I have attached a photo which is believed to be taken in Ceylon.

Thanks
Rosslyn
