Hi, i am trying to find more information on my dear Grandads time in the war. He spoke little of it but we do have his records and his medals to go on. I have attached a pic of him (on the right, he doesnt look very happy)

We know he was on the AA guns and spent time in Sicily, Egypt and Holland. I have no idea what troop he was in or his Commando number (i assume he would have one).
