Good morning

I have been reading my father in laws service record and would like to try and map his service.

I need help please.

When he enlisted he was in the 73rd Searchlight Regiment. He spent four years at home and then 16months (Jan 45 - June 46) in NW Europe.
His record says 'Posted to Draft RERSS' on 22.01.45. There are so many movings about and I cannot understand all the writing.

He was a driver / mechanic and later is a gunner. He told us he drove tanks and flattened Archen.
In his things he has postcards and photos of Hamburg and a booklet on Goslar.

Is there any way I can decipher all this information and get a feel of where he spent his time in Germany?

Any help or guidance would be appreciated please.
Many thanks
Carol
