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.

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 :

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.
