Hi MaxD I wasn't talking about the desert , I was talking about the British Expeditionary Force to Europe in 1939 , H L I 1st battalion was part  of it , and my father. When they left , back to Britain my dad had some leave then off to north Africa , then Sicily and onto Italy he got hit with shrapnel at Monte Casino and was left there as the Army had to make up time to get after the  Germans .

cheers nanville
 ps then home for to take part in D-Day

My thoughts were that it was used for his semaphore flags  MaxD. I really wont post any pictures .in the past I did on another site and they were pinched and displayed on their family tree.
cheers nanville
ps It was kgarrard that mentioned the 1st battalion as written on wikipedia.

pps the epaulets is an ordinary one then the other on top is half the length and buttoned on top of the main one.

Hi all seems  I had left someone under the impression that I was posting a photograph along with my
question sorry if I misled you all I had no intention of doing so.
The question was about my father and the fact that on his uniform shirt he had what seemed like two
epaulets on the left shoulder,he was in the desert at the time with the  H L I, and something to do with signals.
I'll hold my breath and hope my fellow searchers will know the answers.

all the best  nanville.

Hi Nanville,

In case you didn't know, you can increase the font size in your web browser. Try holding down the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard (towards the bottom left) and then press the + key. I hope you find this helpful.

Ingleton is not an Belgian name so I think that the family joger has found is most likely yours, and you should contact the tree owner to see if they can tell you more about the descendants of Edward Ingleton and perhaps put you in touch with any who are living now.

Hi Joger, The reason is not for Being a relation, but to find out why my father was in Belgium, my Uncle, many years ago seemed to think he had been wounded and that he was convalescing in  Belgium, all his 7 siblings have passed on.

Thank you so much Joger for all your help.
