Hello, I have been trying for sometime to locate my late fathers army records.

He enlisted to the HLI in Glasgow om the 5th March 1940 and his army number was 3320947 . During his army service he lost a leg and was invalided out ans discharged at Perth on 26 March 1943. Can anyone show me where I might find some information on his army service. I have no knowledge of where he served, what his duties were or even how he came to have a leg amputated.

Thank you in anticipation

Stewart Craig

Dear Friends,

My father James (Jim) Park served in the HLI from 1950-1956.  He sadly passed away in 1977 when I was 5 years old and I am trying to obtain any information that I can on his time in the HLI.

I would also like to obtain any information I can on my father's good friend in the HLI - his name is David Gray (or Grey).  My mother told me that David was a very good friend of my father's and he married an English woman and moved to Manchester either during service or shortly thereafter.

I also attach a couple of photographs of my father: the first one shows my father sat in the front row, third from right, he is the Corporal.  The second one shows my father firing the Vickers machine gun at the back of the photograph - this photograph was possibly taken in Egypt, Libya, or Cyprus.

If anyone can help me obtain any information on my father it would be greatly appreciated.  My email address is:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Thank you and best wishes,

Robert Park

Can anyone advise Peter Tarrant on the identity of the HLI soldier in this photo? He thinks it might be Alex McGregor a cousin of his?

The kilt identifies it as sometime between 1948 and 1959.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

From Peter...  I hope someone could help me identify the person in the photo, whilst researching my family tree I came across this photo that was among my Mothers possessions.

I believe it may be Alexander Mcgregor but I am not certain about it.

If anyone can be of help I would be grateful.

Kind regards.

Peter Tarrant.
