WW2 SERVICE RECORDS
« on: Friday 05 October 18 12:00 BST (UK) »
Can anyone suggest how I can get access to the war service records of South African servicemen who went to North Africa in WW2? I did notice a post referring to the SANDF a while back but the phone number in South Africa did not work. Any updates on that? Thanks in anticipation.
