Where can I view records for the Territorial Army?
« on: Sunday 30 June 19 00:40 BST (UK) »
Hi,

Can I view the Territorial army records? or can anyone check for me please?.
 I found this written in a newpaper-
Territorial Army Infantry 7th Bn. Northumberland fusiliers-lieut V.W.Brown resigns his commission (25th July 1929) Mr Brown who is the son of Mr J.A.Brown, Blue Bell Hotel, Belford was commissioned in February 1923. For over a year he has been working in Rhodesia.
 
It's possible that this mans father might be my great Grandad but I can only find that he owned the hotel and wasn't originally from Belford. I found this information on his son so I hope it might lead to some information about his father James Albert Brown.

Thanks
