Does anyone remember my father? His name was Michael Wright and he was a Staff Sgt with REME. I only have knowledge that he was based at Didcot Vauxhall Army barracks until end of 1967 then he was posted to Germany - that is all I know!

Edwin Tatton (Ted) 1392

Ted Tatton, my father, transferred from the RA to the REME in 1942 as, I believe, a Captain. He served in France and Holland after D-Day in a tank recovery unit. After the war he was posted to Tripoli with a stint in Malta(1946/9). Then Egypt (1950/2) UK then Singapore (1954/8) and back to the UK and retired in 1960 at the rank of Major. I am compiling a family history and will appreciate any information related to his service - both personal and about the places and times.
