Ringo and I have made an excellent start on researching his grandfather (mentioned on page 5 of this thread). We've managed to get a few of his movements in Belgium and France in 1939-40 and have turned up a photograph of his whole Royal Engineer Field Company just before the sailed to France. Lots of new leads lined up for the New Year, too. It looks as if he played with and repaired very big machines at home and in Europe and blew stuff up while the BEF was in retreat.
