    Hello and welcome
    You need to apply for his service records
    Get a copy of military service records
    Date of birth and death certificate is all you require plus £30
    A bit of a wait but will be worth it
    Other forum members will be along shortly to advise you further

    Regards

    Follow Clive's advice and get an application in for his official service records asap, it's a must if you want his full story. Casualty list states he went missing 26/9/44.
