Ray Bannister

Good day to you all,
I have recently obtained my father's Army Service records and found that he served with BETFOR from 15/09/1947 and 31/08/1950. He was in the regular army with the REME (Royal Warwickshire Regiment). I would be more than happy to hear if anyone has any memories, good or not so good, of Ray (Raymond John) Bannister. I believe he arrived as a Private and left as a Lance Corporal and was a 'painter'. There is a family rumour that he may have fathered a child whilst he was there! Any information would be appreciated.
Many thanks
Bill Bannister
