Default -> Help identifying 3th RTR Battledress

Hi to all,

I have a very nice battledress, 1943 dated, 11th armoured division.
I believe correctly badged for the 3th royal tank regiment.

Inside there is a name and service number.
The name is not easy to read, any help is appreciated as I am not that familiar with British names. I read: CPL POPLE

The service number is 7943367

Can anyone help me identifying this corporal? Any information is welcome!

Thanks a lot!

Just trying to find out more about this corporal!

All help is appreciated!

I always search on the forces of war records. They update daily with new names. They are still in the progress of digitalising all the UK military records.
Nothing found yet...

Just wanted to try here also. There are better experts than me on this forum
