    Hello Everybody and thanks for the add to your site,

    I have come across this site whilst researching my fathers war records which I received some time ago now.

    Until now I havent really had much time to research them due to other commitments.

    Like most other people when I did look in any depth I was just mind bogled with the coding and numbering and when I did start to investigate I just got more confused.

    I was wondering that if i was to post the paperwork would some kind person be prepared to take a look and advise me further.

    Thank you in advance

    Les Hancock

    Welcome, you have started your research the correct way by obtaining his records. You will find there is more than one 'kind person' here. so yes, post up his records and I am sure someone will be along. It would be best to create a new post under a forum applicable to the unit he was in with a heading of his name and service number. Photos are always good if you have any of the period. Once you have a timeline of his service look out for war diaries for the detail. Good luck.

    Welcome to the forum

    For help with deciphering all the terminology in records, start a thread in this linked sub-forum:
    Service Records
    If you don't want to put your father's name in the title at least add name of his Regiment or Corps.

    Good luck with the research.

    Welcome Les.

    I have not long sent off for what I hope to be my Grandfather’s full service records, so I have yet to discover how much will be indecipherable to me!
