Would anyone know, if I were to send for a copy of my army records, is it likely to show anything, I can't remember the Ssgt's surname and without that it is almost impossible to find out any more, I must also say at this time that my unit were not involved in any way apart from the fact that I was on duty when I called the SIB, and I was never called forward or interviewed about the case at all

I always thought that, in the first instance, you were busted back to your substansive rank.

Can I assume that it would take a court martial to bust a man further ?

Thing was I was only Corporal at the time and everything seemed to go so easily, he was my next door neighbour and by the time I got home (next morning) from duty he had been locked up in Duisberg, never saw him again

It was a court martial..

Can only speak for Signals

CO can bust a L/Cpl
CSO (Chief Signals Officer, normally a Col.)can bust a Cpl
Court Martial for Sgt and above.

Thats as far as i remember for substansive ranks.

Your Avatar looks very similar to the cap badge of The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards

Brum,

It was being sold on ebay on 20th Aug 2011 and had one bid at £14.99 then.
You can find the site with photo on the following :

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RARE-BADGE-EAGLE-TROOP-ROYAL-HORSE-ARTILLERY-/270803519596


Good bit of detective work eh! Brum.

Is the battle honour 'Afghanistan' for the earlier conflict in the 1800's ?

That's right Jim.

"Hyderabad" was a battle honour that was shared with the (later) Cheshire Regt.
