Default Service with RASC in India

I am helping out a neighbor to piece together her fathers service during WWII.

He had shared very little information with the family except that he had served in India and finished up as a Major. She did mange to find in his things, Officers Record of Service, Army Book 439.

I have managed to extract the following out of it and hope someone could expand on the information or add to it.

Name: Victor Dennis F O W L E S
Number: EC11986
Regiment: 11th Sikh Regiment
Nature of Commission: Emergency

21/11/1943 London Gazette Emergency Commission CSM to 2nd Lt.
08/04/1944 Gazette of India No531 Lieutenant
Acting/Temp Captain 29/01/1944 - 31/07/1945
Acting/Temp Major 01/08/1945 - [W-3045/422/5(MSI-A) 20/07/1945]

Record Of Service:
In the Ranks 13/01/1940 - 02/08/1940 928 Motor Ambulance Convoy, RASC
03/08/1940 - 28/01/1942 Middle East Force
29/01/1942 - 03/09/1943 India

24/05/1945 - 31/07/1945 SD 4(c) GS Br GHQ(I)

Hope I am able to expand on this and help out a retired neighbor.

Thanks in advance
