Frank Buckley 6/7 Battalion
« on: November 10, 2020, 03:28:44 PM »
Hi,
I'm looking for info on my granddad Frank Buckley (dob 8/11/1906) I have no service number but a photo suggests he served with 6/7 battalion in 1928, there are also indications he served in middle east in WW2. A very crumpled newspaper cutting amongst the few pics I have is from the daily dispatch in dec 1940s from the western desert, i'm also assuming it was kept because he is in the news item with a visit from General Sir Claude Auchinlech. Any help would be appreciated. A service number would be a good start. Martin

Hello Martin and welcome to the forum.

As your Grandfather served in ww2 his service record should be available from the MoD, follow the link http://themanchesters.org/forum/index.php?topic=8967.0

You have enough information about him for the MoD to search for his record, a service number isn‘t required. I don‘t know whether or not his record will include any information on his service with the 6/7th Bn. I‘d be interested to know.
