WW2 Merchant Seamans Record help please.
« on: Tuesday 05 December 17 12:01 GMT (UK) »
Am trying to Trace any information on my deceased (d.03/01/1993) Father in Law's War Record
All that we know is that he was at Dunkirk in May 1940 presume in The Merchant Navy
We have a Photo of him in Merchant Navy Uniform when he married at St.Nicholas Church Ruins  Liverpool on 9th August 1941 and talked of doing the Artic Convoy Runs to Russia.
Yet in 1942 he was in the Army in North Allerton, Yorks when his daughter was born there.
He was also on the D- day Landings on his birthday aged 24 (b. 06/06/1920)
Anyone have any ideas where to start to trace his Military Life ?

Are you in a positon to give us his name and place of birth. North Russian convoys commenced on 29/Sept/1941, so there is a possibilty he may have been involved before joining the Army.
