Thanks for that Louie, may have come across that in the past but there dose not seem to be much information on the 25.000 or so British troop station there. You American's are much more forth coming with information, it seems if my father was in the U.S. Forces I would by now have been able to have his service record. But then that's us British keep it secret until it's to late. then spend the next 100 years looking for it :-) I know if I can get a referance to which Royal Horse Artillery unit's base on Iceland it would narrow my search and would help greatly, but thanks again for your help.
