On the 1938 Attestation for Horace it definitely looks like he is transferred to Kings as it says "To Kings Regt 17.11.43" I've looked at some abbreviations and looking at Horace's 1939 attestation it looks like he was sent to Royal Artillery Field Artillery 11.10.1944 and sent to Coast Defence 10.3.1941 but this has a pencil line through it. Then stamped as Discharged age limit 1956 when Horace was 45 yrs old. Still doesn't explain why he isn't on 1939 census I wonder if he was in military before 1941 and his family was with him as his wife and son are nowhere to be found either in 1939.

On the same attestation page as Horace, against 1571096 Allen it's written "to K.O.R.R. 17.11.43" in what appears to be identical handwriting as the entry for Horace.  Given that, I suggest its the kings own royal regiment that is meant by "To kings regt.".

Hi

I have deleted my earlier post, sorry I was not able to view the record at the time of posting it. It is definitely Kings Regiment.
