World War Two Research
Facts uncovered and mysteries solved
What Can I Do?
I can obtain WW2 service records for the Royal Navy, the British Army and the Royal Air Force. These service records are often very difficult to understand, so I can interpret them for you and supply copies of Operational records (see below).
I can supply copies of War Diaries for the Army and Operations Record Books for the RAF, which give a day-by-day account of what your ancestor would have been involved in and where, giving a fuller picture of his service. This service can be provided if you have details of a man’s units with dates or as an addition to me providing you with copies of his service records.
Copies of Prisoner of War records, including, in many cases, a questionnaire giving details of their capture and confinement, completed by the man himself, can also be supplied. For prisoners of the Japanese, the original POW card is often available, which gives personal information along with date of capture and camps in which a man was held. The cards are written in English and Japanese.
Gallantry Medals can also be researched.
Please contact me if you would like me to research any of the above.
