    Thank you so much for your help:)
    I wonder if you can tell me why his service number always seems to get people puzzled,its always confused me.I notice that there is another service number similar to Dads.
    Is there anyway of knowing where he was when wounded?

    Once again,thank you and all of the very kind people that have helped me.

    Tess apply for his service records as advised
    Get a copy of military service records
    you will not find his service records anywhere on line but the official government source via the link provided

    I am reading this with interest as a family member was a Private in the 1/8th Battalion of the Middlesex Regiment. He was evacuated from France in February 1940 and died 7th March 1941. It seems from this that he was in Britain as he died in a military hospital. I have seen the casualty list where 7th March 1941 is also noted. The newspaper article of 22nd March says he died of an illness. Is there anyway to search here to find out more?

    My Stepfather served in the 8th Battalion of The Middlesex Regiment ( Duke of Cambridge's Own). Found this booklet after his passing in 2005. Found a small pic of a V2 which they captured. He was only around 21 at the time and I cannot imagine he saw when marching in to the concentration camp.
    He bore witness to the arrest of Josef Kramer and Irma Gresse to. I also have a a German Dress Sword which all I know was that it came from a German Officer.
    The latter I found out from his younger Brother at Dad's funeral.
