      Hi Alf, Please see the section “Finding the Service Records of a Relative”

      You can download the forms using the links in the article.
      Once you have the forms filled in and sent off it will take a few weeks for the records to be sent to you.

      Get a copy of the Battalion War Diary. It gives very detailed accounts of where they went.
