WW2 records
« on: Monday 03 May 21 16:35 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find military records for my father Gilbert Howard Parker born in Bristol England on 17th January 1919. I think he enlisted in the British Army in 1939 or 1940. Think he was in France and the Midle East. Any information or were I can find out more would be a great help.

Thanks

Molly

Service records after 1920 are still with the MoD.

You can apply here but you may have to wait some months for them
