    My grandad was a pre war territorial with the 1/6th Btn South Staffordshire Regt.
    Before the Rgt was sent to France Jan 1940 he received papers to say he was in a reserved occupation (steel plater and welder) and was made to leave the army.
    My question is,would my grandad have any kind of service record that I could request?

    Regards Doug

    Any help would be apreciated

  3. He should have a Service Record @ The Army Records Office;Hayes Middlesex,getting your hands on it might prove difficult as they are @ present unreleased to the Public,If he is Still with us he could request a Copy of it Or If Not his Next of Kin Can request details,write to them giving as much detail as possible,Name DOB{DOD]Regiment, Number, Rank,etc ,With Written permission from NoK to disclose details,I believe they now charge for all other than Service Persons Personal Requests;Good Luck
