« on: August 22, 2018, 01:13:01 AM »
Hi, I'm trying to find out about my Grandfather, his name was Edward Seddon, he was in the 5th Manchesters and at Dunkirk. I don't have any service number but any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

All you need if you are the next of kin is his full name and date of birth. Surely you have these.

Yes I have those but the MOD forms I downloaded asked for much more. Thanks Charlie I'll take another look.
