Sorry if I have posted in the wrong section but thought this the most appropriate. My father worked with the admiralty I think during WW2. Is there somewhere I can check to see if this is the case? His name was James (Jim) Kennedy dob 11 Apr 1918?
Kennedy, Bell, Crumley, Job, Reilly, Convery & Crowley

Personnel serving with the Armed Forces after 1920, will have their Service Records still at the MOD.

You can apply for copies, subject to certain restrictions.
And there is a fee of 30.

It's a bit of a long shot, but you could see if there is a mention in the Gazette - they did include some civil service postings as well as military.
