« on: Tuesday 02 August 22 17:11 BST (UK)  »
Good evening,  Was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction to confirm a regimental number as trying free sites and nothing is showing for 14432361 CFN Stanley  Ronald Sanderson , he was Toolmaker and joined REME

trying to help get info for a friend,  any assistance would be greatly appreciated,  I have even tried the REME Regiment without any luck.   I have a DOB of 02/10/1916

many thanks for looking

Hi SCH,  i have found my military bits on  www.forces-war-records.co.uk it is chargable but you can get free searches  and they do offer free weekends   , alas i do not have paid access but i did a search and found
Richard    Fagg    0            Private    1861    Chatham Invalid Depot (Div 2)    
Richard    Fagg    1372    Private    1861    69th Foot (S Lincolnshire) Depot    
Richard    Fagg    819          Private    1861    52nd Foot (Oxfordshire) Depot    

52nd LIGHT INFANTRY

1865-1881.

Based on extracts from- A short history of the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, 1741-1922 for the young soldiers of the Regiment. By R.B. Crosse

 
In March, 1865, the 52nd arrived at Portsmouth from India, and almost a year later moved to Aldershot. The 52nd was moved suddenly to Dublin, owing to Fenian riots, in December 1866.

In September, 1868, the 52nd left Ireland for Malta, whence the Regiment moved in 1873 to Gibraltar, and returned the next year to England (Portsmouth). On the arrival of the Regiment, the Depot of the 85th (Bucks Volunteers) or King's Light Infantry was attached to the 52nd. In 1876 Cowley Barracks were opened, when they were occupied by the Depots of the 52nd and 85th (as the 42nd Brigade Depot), the Regiments being then quartered, the 85th in India and Africa, and the 52nd at Plymouth, Aldershot (1878), and Chatham (1881).


I am sure if you pay you may get more info and also may locate others you are looking for,  sorry not as much info but a start   hopefully someone else may be more help

You could also try  https://www.sofo.org.uk which has info on Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry
