    Hi Karen and welcome aboard

    The one and only place to start is to obtain his service records, these are held by the MOD and the link to the forms is here Request records of deceased service personnel

    There are some web sites whose title infers that they have them but they do not.

    Once you have his files start a new thread for him and upload images so we can help you decipher his records

    Hello Karen and welcome to the forum.

    While you apply/wait for copy records, Post a New Thread under Searching for Someone & Military Genealogy and tell us what you know already, adding photos etc if you have any. The membership will help if there's anything useful to comment on.

    Good luck with your research.

    Welcome Karen.

    We can't predict what the army records will show, but as dbf says we may be able to tease out possibilities and probabilities from any known fact.
