Information about WW2 Army Unit

If you can help Mike with information please contact him at

Hi Ray,

Doing some family history and concentrating on those who served in the various wars.

One of my uncles enlisted in the PMF (Permanent Military Forces) in 1932 and joined the Royal Australian Artillery at Georges Heights in Sydney. 

After WW2 broke out, he was transferred to a local unit, but I have not been able to find any info about this particular unit, only that it did exist, according the National Archives of Australia.

The Unit was “Army Inspection Staff NSW Proof & Experimental Section.” According to his records, he served in this unit from 1941 to 1946, never having left Australia. He was discharged from this unit

Reason for this email was to ask if you could share this email with the group, in case there is someone out there who might know about this unit. 

Many thanks Ray (Payne) for all the work you do for us, keeping us all updated on various issues.

Best regards,
Mick Bayley
