I donít want to sound awkward but are you sure about the date of your fathers death?
The following is taken from ARRSEPedia:
57 (Bhurtpore) Battery RA
On the 29th January 1940 the Battery joined 1 HAA Regiment covering the withdrawal of the British troops from Dunkirk with its two remaining guns.
From 1940 onwards the Battery served in the Western desert, Greece, and then in Crete during 1941. In 1942 the Battery was in Cyprus before deploying to Egypt, until their return to the UK on 6th May 1945.
There was also a 57th Anti-Tank Regiment, Royal Artillery is it possible in served with them?
All the best,
