    I have been searching for a forum like this for a while.
    My grandad was in the RAF in WW2 and I am trying get more info about where, what, when and how.

    Thanks for the welcome, greatly appreciated.

    Welcome Martin

    Have you (or his Next of Kin) applied for his service records? It has to be his NoK, and they have to fill out the form on this page:

    Service records - RAF

    If your grandmother is still with us then it will be free - otherwise it will cost £30. Be sure to request photocopies of the originals as their typed summaries aren't always that helpful

    Neither are the photocopies. Welcome to the forum Martin.

    Hi Martin, welcome! Get some more info on your Grandfather and we should be able to help you, a name would be good to start with!

    Hi Martin and welcome! You wouldn't believe some of the information that is rolling around in the heads of these people :) I am consistently amazed.
