Thank you for establishing that 42 LAA Regt RA were linked to 1 Armoured Division. They were the anti aircraft defence for the Division and so they went wherever the Division went.

That means that Trevor’s father was with the Division during their brutal experience on the Gothic Line near Coriano in the first few days of Sep 44. He would then have switched to 69 LAA Regt RA when 1 Armd Div was broken up in Oct 44.

Regards

Frank
