Hi i am trying to research my Father in India in ww11.I believe he was in the RASC IN 1944.
i HAVE A PHOTO IN WHICH HE APPEARS TO HAVE A BIG MATERIAL PATCH coming from under his /epileppe which is black and on his left shoulder.It appears to have a  RASC EMBLEM ON IT.Not sure how to upload it on here but willing to send by e mail if anyone can help me identify it.

Rhona has sent me a photo of her Father  'Arthur Collet' to add to the site.

I'll post it now and await a higher resolution photo.

Under the Epaulette is infact an RASC Side Hat. Is this an Officers type?


I can't make out a badge of rank. I am unsure of the one displayed under his tunic jacket button! Could he be an Officer?

I have in a PM on other information she could add so that others can add there experience in seeking more info about her Father, John collect.

I think the reason for lack of information lies in India.

Is it possible Arthur Collet/Collett was actually a Royal Indian Service Corps (RIASC).? Possibly completed his Enlistment and time served actually in India?

I am aware there were many Indian Troops fighting in Europe. Maybe Arthur remained in India

I have searched the RASC site for any mention of a Arthur Collett/Collet. Nothing! No nowt. Nothing in Journals etc.

I must search for info on the WW2 Talk Forum!

Contact with the OIC Records on this site may be worth a try?
