Hello Dave

2 Coy means 2 Company. Every unit was split into smaller parts for easier admin and operational reasons. Infantry battalions usually 250 ish at full strength but dont know other types and their relative strengths.

And youre dad WOULD have been proud mate, definitely. best of luck to you.

Steve
