Service book

Hi, I have my father-in-law's service book for WW2.
Could anyone tell me what the entry 'Embarked for B.L.A.' means.
Thank you
Ann.

Hi Ann,

I found this answer to someone else asking the same question on another site.

Emb UK for BLA - Embarked from the UK for the British Liberation Army (the BLA was name given to the Commonwealth forces fighting in Europe)

Hope that helps
