If you know your father’s unit then you should get the War Diaries for that unit from the National Archives in Kew. These give a very detailed picture of where the unit was deployed each day and what they got up to.

If getting to Kew is challenging and impractical, I can recommend a few people who will source them for you for £0.10 a page. I use them a lot because I live in York. A very efficient service.

Does that help?
