 8) There is not too much in the public domain regarding WW2 service personal, but as next of kin you can apply (foc if your Mom can apply) for his Service Record.

For how to see:  http://www.veterans-uk.info/service_records/army.html

And if you have any queries about it, don't hesitate to ask.

Two battalions of the Regiment served in Italy during WWII - the 8th and the 9th.  It would help if you could first of all find out which one your Father served with.
