    I'm afraid to order a service record here you have to cough up 30 and prove you are next of kin (then wait several months for it to arrive). See here:

    I see on the death index that there was a James Donald Moate (note arrangement of first names), died in January 2007 in Lincolnshire, who was born 17th November 1923.

    He was born in Wisbech district, Cambridgeshire and also married there in 1951 (also listed as James D Moate in both records).
