      My grandfather died two weeks ago at the grand old age of 96, and I’ve always been fascinated by his war stories. He was quite closed off but I want to do him justice in his eulogy and he gave me his Italy Star several years ago as a memento and spoke many times about his participation in the Italy Star association. I know he served as an armoured vehicle captain and saw action In both Africa and Italy, his name was Donald J Mcinnes and I was hoping to find out some info about his service so I can truly represent his time and sacrifice for our country. Thanks in advance

      I am afraid that you have rather left it late. You need to go to http://www.gov.uk and search for ‘How do I obtain a Service Record’. That will give you his full military history from start to finish.

      The tricky bit is that the service can take up to three months!
