I am seeking information about my father and his service in the UK during the second world war. I know he was in the RAAF and was attached to some RAF unit(s) around 1942 but that is about it. Anyone that served with him or that has information would they please contact me.

Regards,

Mark Roots

Dear Mark,

your best bet is firstly try either the RAAF or the Australian NAtional Archives. They will hold his RAAF personal file, whih will detail his service career, including his attachment to the RAF.

You will need to know your father's service number to provide a few other details about him. I am presuming that you father has passed away.

Once you have your father's service record, you will be able to investigate further.

The RAF Personnel Management Agency in Glouchester, England will also still hold a copy of the personal file of your father's RAF service, but, in this case, I would only recommend it as a last resort since they charge 25 pounds, will only provide the file on a strict next-of-kin basis and the file will not give details of his service after being attached to the RAF.

Regards

Rod

The files have now moved to National archives of Australia. You'll need a service number which will help greatly when trying to find this information.
