It should be easier for your mother as she is still living. Again, the name she served under (presumably her maiden name?) and the date of birth should provide the MoD with sufficient information to identify her in their records.
Let me wish you success, Teresa, and hopefully you will find it worthwhile. It usually takes several weeks or months for the information to arrive: so you will have to be patient.

1317660 Peter Warburton
5056474 Peter Warburton
Caution - (There are other P Warburton and one or more may be Peter)
Service number block 1311745 to 1325000 started use in Nov 1940 at Oxford.
The other number was postwar National Service.
You can look for your grandmothers service number in the AIR 78 series as well.
Not 100% but the best we have at the moment.

Be prepared for a long wait - I applied for my mother's ATS records, and they took a few days short of 12 months to arrive!!

He was drafted as an Aircrafthand (General Duties), and stationed at 2 Recruit Centre Cardington 13 Jun 1941 for basic training, and then left there on 25 Jul 1941 to go to "1 Wg 16 RC Cardiff" (which has HH in the Reason column). I understand HH is Headquarters Holding (or Reserve Command), but I can't find any details regarding 1 Wing, or 16 RC in Cardiff (RC = Reserve Command??). He was stationed there until 14 Aug 1941 before moving on to 51 OTU at Cranfield.
Does anyone know anything about 1 Wg 16 RC Cardiff? Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.
