  1. Hi all..

    My Grandad passed away several years ago, on the odd occasion I tried to find out what he did in WW2. He would not say a great deal only that I think he was in the Manchester Regt and was based in Carlisle.... and that was it.. never seen any medals or other info.. He came over from Belfast in the mid 30's and again that is all I know...

    If anybody out there could help shine any light on this it would be appreciated..

    Regards OG

    Have you or anyone else in the family applied for his service record.

    The rules and application are here:
    Service Record request

    From there you should get pointers for where he served and also will have a record of any medals.
  3. To be honest no body else in the family has ever mentioned it.. I will have a look at the link..
