      We are trying to trace the service history of my father in law, Douglas Joseph Chamberlain. He passed away over 30 years ago and no one ever talked to him in depth about his service history. All we know is that he served in Italy and the desert ( although he wasn’t a Desert Rat) and in a tank regiment. We believe he was originally promoted to the rank of sergeant but was later demoted to private ( for insubordination). Can anyone help please? We have tried National Archives/ Forced War Records and Ancenstry.com but without success.

      Carol.

      The only way to pin him down is to apply to the MoD in Glasgow for his Service Record. This will show exactly when he was enlisted, where he trained, whom he joined and when, where in the world he went and when he was discharged.

      The link is https://www.gov.uk/get-copy-military-service-records

      Once you have his record, get back in touch and I will happily help you to decipher it.

      Regards

      Frank
