    I found this link via google and I think it will at least help you a little:


    http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=595945.0 


    This may be of interest if you don't already know. It is taken from a website of which the link is shown below.


    'Did you know, service records post 1922 are still restricted and only held by the M.O.D.? While we hold many collections of records after 1922, the service records themselves are only held by the M.O.D. All is not lost, however':


    If you are a direct relative, you can apply to the M.O.D. directly to receive these service records.

    Doesn't always go that way, I can't get my Fathers records until 2046, not a lot "I" can do, tried all ways, my son will maybe get them(if he cares) hope he does by then.
    My Dad was one of the first Commando Regiment, only got one boxing medal for 9 years service, woweee, I will find out eventually.

    That is an awfully long time to wait, I was thinking if it could have anything to do with your father serving in a Commando Regiment. It was only a thought, but in any case it is a sad state of affairs. You have my sympathy.

    I have heard there are some "State secrets" that have been mothballed for 100 years because of their sensitivity, perhaps we may get them a little earlier, my late Mother always said he didn't speak about things he did during the war, only spoke about places he'd been, all over Europe and Africa it seemed.
