Tracking down old service records

I have a colleague who is trying to trace his father’s service record. Unfortunately he passed on some time ago and all he has is his name and rank. No DOB or regimental number.

Sgt John Mazzitelli and he served in WWII is all he has. Pretty unique name I think.

Anybody know where I should point him?


My father got his (1948 onwards) records from Glasgow-the number is on the Army website. Next of Kin should be able to apply for a deceased's records. Good hunting
Can I get my grandfathers details although I'm not next of kin? I have a copy of his death certificate and as my father is NOK will I need to get written permission from him to release the details to me or not?
