RAVC Posted 19 February , 2018 Share Posted 19 February , 2018 My wife's family believe that her maternal grandfather had some connection to the Inns of Court Regiment in, we assume, 1918. He was born in early 1900. We are unable to find any information regarding his "service" either as an Officer Cadet or as an "Other Rank" as part of the training staff. His name was Allan Dudley Clarke (ADC) Sanders. Just for information we beleive that after the war he was employed by Shell in London. In 1938 he attested to the Royal Artillery(TA). He was in the 54th Heavy Anti Aircraft Regiment in London and did spend sometime at the Infantry Training Unit in Colchester on Coast Defence/Anti Aircraft duty. At the end of the war he was a WO2 (Gunnery instructor?). In 1947 the 54th become 454th HAA RA TA City of London Regiment. At some point he was commissioned to Lt and then in 1950 to Captain. It is believed that during WW2 he did not get posted overseas. His original service number was 878564 but in the London Gazette entry of 1950 his number is given as 394967. Did chaps get a new number when commissioning from the ranks? We still have his kit bag from his 454th days which has the number S7S5564 stencilled on it but have no idea what that relates to. Any information regarding the Inns of Court Reg and his possible association with it will be greatly appreciated. Cheers. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
