    Other forum members are more experts on RA matters and will probably help you in your quest - have you contacted the RA Museum?

    Have you sent off for his service record - this is the foundation stone for research - link here https://www.gov.uk/requests-for-personal-data-and-service-records#how-to-apply-for-service-personnel-records

    Do you know if he escaped? as there may be an Escape & Evasion report

    He may also have completed a Liberation Questionaire - not all did unfortunately - from a quick look it doesn't look as though he did, but others have better access to records than I.
