      Hi – I’d like to find out more about my grandfather, Joe Bannister, who served in Italy in 1944-5. Details are very sketchy but he was I understand a corporal cook in the Catering Corps (was it the Service Corps at the time?) and based in Bari. Advice on where to start my research would be very welcome. Thanks.

      Nick.

      You need to go to http://www.gov.uk and search for ‘getting a service record’.

      This will get you his Service Record. From there, you can see every detail of where he went and whom he served with.

      Regards

      Frank
