  1. I'm waiting for his service record to come through. Old family tales recall his patrol were attacked in Burma and 'bayonetted' to death. Luckily he had an infection at the time and was in the field / local hospital.
  2. Thanks again, great to be able to connect the human story and context behind the watch, for information he was in the 178th Field Artillery and went on to live to the grand age of 98.
  3. Thanks for the information JoT, My grandfather was a Topographical Draughtsman of the 36 Division of the Royal Artillery based in Poona, India from 1942 to 45, that would explain how, perhaps, it came into his possession.
  4. Good afternoon all, I recently inherited my Grandfathers watches, a couple of pocket watches (posted under pocket watches) and this watch. It is rumoured to have belong to his father, it looks rather worn out. Can anybody identify the make, age, quality? Indeed any information is gratefully received. Many thanks.
  5. Good afternoon all, I have recently inherited my grandfathers pocket watches however my knowledge of watches is very limited, I would really appreciate any information you guys might have. There are two: "West end Watch Co" stamped on the back with 'The A1 Regulator' Swiss made, with a picture of a stream train. The watch has been personally inscribed with my grandfathers initials and is dated 11-07-1945. Serial number 831097. I'm new to this forum and I haven't worked out how to upload photos but the link below takes you to same watch. http://jamqistina.blogspot.com/2012/01/a1-regulator-west-end-watch-co-rm350.html "Oris" Anti-shock. This is not inscribed. It has a chrome case and numbers on its face, not Roman Numerals. I found this link: https://www.google.co.uk/search?safe=active&biw=1745&bih=875&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=srWoXMnOJfTggwfvpb6gBA&q=oris+anti+shock+pocket+watch&oq=Oris+Anti&gs_l=img.1.2.0l3j0i30l2j0i5i30l5.5329.12894..15646...0.0..0.92.1149.19......1....1..gws-wiz-img.......0i67j0i7i30j0i8i7i30j0i10i24j0i8i30.lr5p_Rgd1YM&safe=active#imgrc=R7DBpOG6mW__wM:&spf=1554561041459. On the back it has what I can find on the internet 'Vine Oris Pockech Art Deco Design In Tipperary Town' Apologies for the links, if anybody can advise how to upload the photos that would be great. As I say I would really appreciate any information on these watches, age, quality etc. Many thanks for your help Teletran
