Greetings all, I am hoping to obtain my Grandfathers service records for WW2. Little is known about his family as his parents died when he was very young and I am hoping his service records may have additional information about his parents and family. I already have his birth certificate and his parents names but I have stalled here. I obtained the marriage cert of my Grandparents which was lucky to have his WW2 service number and it states he was with the RASC as a Blacksmith ( Royal Army Service Corps - Transport ). I know he served in Burma and he returned home after the war. Is there any information that members here can help me with before I take the next step of contacting the MOD to obtain his full service records? Also, can anyone clarify if WW2 service records supply information about a soldiers parents and their own places of birth or residence? I can provide additional information if anyone here can help with lookups etc ... My father seems to recall that he may have been attached to the Royal Sussex Regiment (Shiny 9th). His name was Jim White. Greatly appreciate any help, suggestions and advice! Regards, Simon.
