I came from England to Australia 1950, with the family when I was nearly seven, I was never told about what ever happened to my father in the ww2, he was in the RAF, and maybe a POW of JAP, do you help with type of Genealogy . Thanks Jean
Hello Jean,

There is an answer to your question, it will answer all your questions, as you are his daughter you will receive the full file, I believe you have his regimental number, that makes things a lot easier.

You apply for His RAF record here:

http://www.veterans-uk.info/service_records/service_records.html

The record costs £30 and takes about 4 weeks.

The record will list eveything about your father, birth date, marriage, children, medical, where he served, medals and pension record.

Hi Jean,

If you have his birth date, they will find the correct record, the last record i bought had 36 pages.

The record will give dates and places of all postings.
