This is exactly the sort of information I was hoping for! Thank you so much guys.
I will definitely contact the MOD in Glasgow. I’ll do that tomorrow to get things rolling because I’m booked to out to Florence in Feb 2019. I know these things take time.
Chris, I’m pretty sure he was part of the 8th army. He was at El Alamein barrage kicked off. Does that help. But I don’t know exactly how regiments were organised once they got in to Italy.
What identification would need to get my Dad’s info from the MOD though? I’m sure they wont just release that to anyone? I’ll get straight on to them though. They’ll soon let me know I guess.
So thank you very much chaps. Really appreciated.
