    Hi Roger, if you can afford the service record I think it would be worthwhile.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks, Ade. I was leaning heavily in that direction, so you helped sway my decision. I have requested the service record. I also am having 2 more stars researched, and one of them promises to be a combat award!
