      I have a collection of medals for my wife’s grandfather, including an Italy Star.

      We have a service number but am really struggling to find any information with this or name info.

      S/N is 1521074

      Medal collection includes (I believe this may not be a definitive list)
      Africa Star w/1st Army Clasp
      France & Germany Star
      War Medal
      Defence Medal
      1939-1945 Star
      Italy Star

      Any information greatly appreciated!

      Alec.

      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

      Thanks Frank, I have managed to find his Royal Artillery attestation record which has given some information.

      No initial unit joining information
      Reposted to LAA 27/11/1941
      To 50 S/L 19/01/1942
      Z(T) 21/6/1946

      There is another pencil entry that looks like 143/152 but doesn’t appear to relate to anything specific.

      Alec.

      That would be 50 Searchlight Regiment RA.

      Still best to get his Service Record for the fuller picture.

      Regards

      Frank
