    Hi Adam, his nearest living next of kin , i.e .your Mum/Dad/Gran could apply for his service record from the MoD.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Adam,

    My grandfather never had his medals issued, after he died I applied for them and received a horrible, cheap looking group of the four medals you have,the main thing was the paperwork they came with.

    Anyway, last year I applied for his service record and although I knew he was a driver of some kind of vehicle that carried fuel, I didn't know that vehicle was a Churchill Crocodile tank. Apply for his service record, there might not be much in there but it's worth doing and the turnaround now is a couple of weeks rather than 6 to 18 months. Here's a link https://www.gov.uk/requests-for-pers...ervice-records
