Welcome to rootschat  :)

It would be helpful if you can say when & where was your grandfather was born. Do you know what regiment he served in & what dates? Is he still alive? We cannot mention names & details of living persons on this forum.

I only have access to WW1 records, sorry. Where did you find that number?

Are you after his military records? I saw this on ancestry
Although British military service records for WWII are still held by the MOD, family members can apply to get copies of personnel records by writing to the MOD. You will need the permission of the person themselves if they are still alive, or their surviving next of kin along with their death certificate.

If you do a search, you will find other posts on rootschat about obtaining military records & all the details of contacting the MOD plus what it will cost.

PS pleased you've found your 'caps lock' key  ;D

WW2 records are still held by the MOD.

See: https://www.gov.uk/requests-for-personal-data-and-service-records
(Service Records of Deceased Personnel)

It will cost 30 for his records.

You do not need his Regimental Number to apply.
