Paul,

You're rather fortunate because Robert's Service Record is on line.  Most were burned in the Blitz.  His father, Thomas lived at Percy Street, Pendleton. 

If you don't subscribe to Ancestry, take a trip to the library and use one of their PCs for free.  It's prob. best for you to see for yourself, because there is a lot of information to digest that may correlate with your other records.  I would also find it most interesting that way.  If you have specific questions no doubt the forum can help though.
