Good afternoon,
I am looking for information about Allen Cotterhill.
I am told by family that he was a Marine Commando in the second world war.
He started in Scotland in 1942 and was discharged from the service in Sept 1946.
I am told he was a radio operator and served in Hong Kong and Kowloon.
PLYX 110720 is the number I have.

Please can you help me with advice on how to find out more about him?
Thank you

Hello Ann

If Alan is deceased then you can apply for a copy of his Service Record. What you get will be dependant on whether you are immediate next of kin or not. More can be found on Service Records here:

Pete Rogers, son of LSgt Joe Rogers MM & nephew of TSM Ken McAllister. Both No2 Commando.
God and the Soldier, all men adore, In time of danger and not before.
When the danger is passed and all things righted, God is forgotten, and the Soldier slighted.

**** nb. I no longer monitor private messages. ****
