If you have a general research interest - you’ll only have access to limited information, unless they died more than 25 years ago.

See https://www.gov.uk/get-copy-military-service-records/apply-for-someone-elses-records

You'll need a Death Certificate, a Date of Birth OR a Service Number, and a fee of £30.

If it's a query about a specific person, you'd need their military records (see previous comments from others).

If it's a query about which regiments had men stationed in the Yeovil area during 1945/46, then you could try contacting a local history group to see if that would help narrow your search.
