Sidney Hardy Royal Navy record 1939 onwards
« on: Tuesday 19 December 17 10:50 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I have located his Navy record up to 1930's but cannot find anything more.  I know he served during 1939 -1946.  His service number: J42199.  I would like to trace his service record up to leaving the Navy.  Born 1900, Death 1968, Lived in Birmingham. 1911 Census: RG14, 18364.

Any help offered would be much appreciated. :)

Mike.

You will have to get his record from the Royal Navy, all WW2 records are still held by the MOD.

Hi,  The search document requires his NI Number.  He has been deceased for 60+ years  with no close family to ask.  How do I get this info?  Sid Hardy is my uncle.  I do have his service number (1917 - 1937)

As you have his service number I would go ahead with "not known" - the form does say accurately as possible.
