Cyril first joined the RAF as is shown in the photos above he married his young wife Phillis whilst serving in the RAF.

The then joined the SWB in about 1942/43

In the photos you can see that he is serving in India, Africa and the middle East, so he must have been serving in the 1st Battalion.

He then joined the Territorail Army after the war and settled down to married life and held down a job as a Baker.
