I am searching for information about Major JM Higginbottom. He lived at 50 Abbotts Vale, Barrow. I have a case he owned with his address in it, but no other details.

If you put "J. M. Higginbottom" into the London Gazette search (such as it is), Maj. Higginbottom appears to have served in WW2 and after in the Royal Pioneer Corps, and relinquished his commission in 1957

Edit:

Could this be your "Major J. M. Higginbottom"?

Thanks Gentlemen. Really appreciate the feedback. Think this might be my man. His career with the Atomic Energy Commission could easily have placed him in Barrow. Sorry for my ignorance, but what is FMP? Is there anywhere I should search for his Second World War experience? Many thanks. Chris.

Worked out FMP and have checked that reference thanks. The trunk that I have says HRAEMBN, HQ, BOMBAY, (2). Any ideas what the HRAEMBN stands for? I guess the RA is Royal Artillery and maybe BN is Battalion? Many thanks again. Chris.
