William Dickson
« on: Sunday 06 January 19 12:55 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I am looking for information on William Dickson born 20.4.1936. I donít know where.
He joined the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards and became a sergeant. Number 23505282.
I know about his wife and family but nothing on his parents. Any help would be appreciated.

The records for anyone serving after 1920 are still with the MOD.

Where and when did he marry / die or is he likely to still be living.

You really need the marriage certificate to take this back further.  As you are giving us no clue as to where the marriage took place we can only guess where he may have come from. I am not seeing a record that matches him in 1939 with the date of birth you have given.  The only William Dickson with no middle initial on the GRO index for that birth 'date' was born Rochdale area and appears to have married there in 1956.  I will not post any information on him as hopefully he is still living

I will have to contact family as we are not related so I havenít access to the records. Will get back to them and see if I can obtain more information.
