Hi,Can anyone help.I am researching my dad's war years.He joined the Leicester Tigers on November 15th 1939.In February 1940 he was sent overseas to Torbruk.Would anyone know which port they would have sailed from,or any information at all.

Thanks

Are you sure it's that date?
I'm aware that the 2nd Battalion of the the Leicestershire Regiment went out there in March 1941.

The most likely port to sail from would be Liverpool, but that's a guess...
