Transcriber's notes

Hi Adobie,
Its Royal Sappers and Miners. If you look at the FAQs for the surveyors you will find names, ranks and regiments.
Kind Regards
Nora

Thanks Nora, I was obviously looking in the wrong place.

Also if you read your last newsletter it explains the problem we have with some of the group access. And you don't need to note the fact that there is writing in a different hand or colour of ink. Just the details is all we need.

Hope you are enjoying the change to OSNBs

Cheers
Nora
