    Default Francis Smith service records

    I am trying to obtain my father's service records however with such common name I seem to be stuck.

    My father never spoke of his time in the service only to confirm he was in the RAF. So I have no service number or unit/squadron etc. The 3 photos I have of him show no insignia etc. 1 appears to be in blue and 1 in khaki the 3rd could be either any thoughts on when where etc would be very appreciated.

    Hi

    You don't need his service number to apply for his records as long as you can provide his full name and date of birth.
