Grandfathers join date?

Living History


I do hope I can get help on this.

I have recently like many others been researching my family tree. Notably my Mums side. To keep this short (as it is massively convoluted), my Mum never knew her Dad. Well after months of spending hours on the old internet I have found out who he was. By stroke of luck one record I found gave his service number so….

He was at Ranby Camp, East Retford in 1945 aged 29, his service number is 6397391, Royal Sussex Regiment i do believe?? That ties in because he was born in East Grinstead.

Now I only ask if anyone can figure out his join date due to the fact my local Bassetlaw Museum has 6 photos per 951 pages of photos from Ranby Camp circa 1941 to 1946, and I think I may have found a group shot of him from 1941.

As I typed, if anyone could help me, im sure my Mum would be as delighted as I, thank you.
