Hello,
I have joined to see if I can find ourt any more about my father-in-law, Patrick Joseph Young who joined the Border Regiment in 1927 and left in 1947. I believe that most of his time was spent in India and I hope to upload some photographs of his time there.

Welcome to the forum.

Have you got hold of his service records they will give you loads of information, if you haven't here is a link so that you can.

It will cost you £30 and a long wait but you will get information that you need.

Regards Mike.
