WW2 naval records can anyone help?
« on: Thursday 04 January 18 14:28 GMT (UK) »
Hi
I am trying to find the service records for my father-in-law Patrick Harty born 1923. Details known:-
Date of birth
Address
Official No. and rank (AB)
Date of discharge from HMS Pembroke Oct 1946.
The discharge paper includes payments made but also "date of recovery from desertion" however neither my husband nor his family know anything about this.
Can anyone tell me where I can look or whom I may contact for further info/assistance re his service record - neither Ancestry or findmypast have any record
thanks
Judith

Service Records for all military personnel serving after 1920 are still with the MOD.

To apply, see: https://www.gov.uk/get-copy-military-service-records
There will be a charge of 30, and you will need a copy of his death certificate.
