Military Remembrancer. A 24 page booklet for the recruit to help
remember the basics of being a soldier, it was owned by 45094 Pte E Goldthorpe 14th
Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry at Foxhall Heath Camp Suffolk. Undated but possibly WW1.
The next three pieces of paperwork including discharge

dated 1918 belonged to a Private Horace Thornhill Durham Light Infantry, discharged on the 7 of
August 1919 no longer fit for war.

like Aetonua? I haven't found any American training plan that looks close to that yet.
WW11 Malta vateran Wilfred Wilson's release papers and travel warrant.
R.A Barrett discharge papers Korean war.
Two Leicestershire Regiment permanent pass books issued in 1946 to a Bandsman Walford.
War department driving permit dated 1944.
Its difficult to make out the name all I can read is the surname Bridge.
Release papers and Pay book with associated paperwork
that came with it to 844942 GNR (ER) Ernest Henshaw. He joined the
South Notts Hussars Yeomanry Royal Artillery TA in 1935. As you can see from his paperwork
he was entitled to the 1939/45 star, Africa star with 8th army clasp, Italy star, Germany star,
defence medal and war medal 1939/45. There is even a torn piece of paper from the Nottingham journal 13
may 1944 giving a brief history of the unit and what they did during the war so far including being
in the first siege of Tobruk with the Australians.
Thanks to Erica Shaw for donating her grandfathers papers to my collection.
There are only three unit campaign stars entitlement papers present, it looks
like the one for the Africa star with 8th army clasp has got lost over the years.
Nottingham journal 13 may 1944
Release book for T/4977480 Corporal Victor Bambrick R.A.S.C.
Served from September 3 1939 to May 19 1946 so he served through the whole war.
Unfortunately I know nothing about Corporal Victor Bambrick as this book came with a job lot of war
time books and leaflets.
