    Hello,

    Can anyone provide any service history regarding this chap.
    I know the family, and they have asked if the forum could help them find anything about their Grt. Uncle.

    thank you

    I have him also in the London Gazette, 8th Sept 1943
    Temp Commission to P/O no. 53020

    The family said he wore the caterpillar badge.
