The following makes interesting reading.............

Inkerman Barracks, Woking
Date of construction 1859
(Converted to barracks in 1892)

The barracks were named after the Battle of Inkerman fought during the Crimean War on 5 November 1854.

In 1892 a prison for invalid convicts at Knaphill, near Woking, was converted to house two battalions of infantry. The first infantry battalion to be quartered there in 1895 was 2nd Battalion The Royal West Surrey Regiment (The Queen's). In September 1947 the Royal Military Police moved to Inkerman Barracks, establishing Inkerman as the home of the Corps.

Now Demolished.

That's correct about the definition of 'squad'...............gives us the term 'squaddies' for new recruits

You're not messing us about.............

AnnCardiff Report 17 Dec 2012 12:19

Just a thought.....was/is this man a UK national?

There are 715 Squadrons in USA and Australia..........

Reggie Report 17 Dec 2012 11:54

RMP, as I know it, is part of the Army...........Royal Military Police (known as the Redcaps)

Does your friend have a time-scale for the man's period of service? in whichever branch it was............

AnnCardiff

AnnCardiff Report 17 Dec 2012 11:46

right - will check that

Another thought. Is your friend sure he was in the RAF?

Looking at the (incomplete) list on
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Royal_Air_Force_aircraft_squadrons

the only one with 715 against the name is 715 Naval Air Squadron

That's a nuisance - How about Rootschat?

Although I don't use it, they have a military forum

Added - a free search on http://www.forces-war-records.co.uk/

There are a number of RAF Sergeant Warne's listed.

Looking for RMP who was a Sergeant Warne from 715 Squadron, he would be in his 80's now?

Any ideas please - asking this for a friend
