    I wonder if anyone can help me with my search for my father’s record. All I have is a photo of him in uniform & his army number - 6917647. I have been searching for a while now, but I am none the wiser. His name is Patrick John Thomas Wilder and was born 07/10/1915 in Marylebone, London.

    I hope that someone can help me in my search.

    First thing you need to do is apply for his service records - forms here - Request records of deceased service personnel you can ONLY obtain them for WW2 from the MOD they are NOT available anywhere online


    Service number block - The Rifle Brigade 6905001 - 6972000
