Hi, new member. I am trying to find information on my fathers Service History, I have obtained a copy of his service record from MOD, but it is sketchy in places. He was posted to 45th RTR 9.5.42 Arrived Port Tewfik Egypt 4.7.42 Attached to H.Q. 8th Army 9.2.43 Ceased to be attached to the above 18.2.43 Posted to HQ 8th Army Protecting Squadron 7.6.43 Posted to 42nd RTR 31.3.44 Embarked Middle east 5.4.44 Disembarked UK 22.6.44 He was awarded the Africa Star with 8th Army Clasp and the Italy Star. I know he was wounded at some stage, result of a land mine, he was the only survivor his other mates were killed. I can remember his pay book having a telegram inside stating " Missing believed KIA", but he was found 6 weeks later in a field hospital. Sadly my mother threw his pay book out! Any information or where to search much appreciated.
