Hi tony!

The next of kin can apply for his service record from The Army Personnel Centre in Glasgow, as they have his Surname, Forenames and Service Number.

Proof of death is required unless died during service.  Documents are free of charge for the widow/er, all others £30, and it can take a while (perhaps even 6 months if they are really busy)

Further information and all necessary documents can be downloaded from:
