Is it possible from this service number to place this man in a particular Company?

Grateful, as always, for any help.

David,

If you can find Len Sellers' magazine 'RND' issues Nos.13, 14 & 15 (June, September and December 2000) you will see there, published in three sections, "Solo Saga" detailing the experiences of the RND Divisional Engineers - Signals, written by Reginald Gale.

The name of Sergeant MacKenzie (sic) crops up only in a passing ref, nevertheless the three articles should be good for background info

best regards

Michael
