Hi Marc

We do not have access to official Service Records so cannot check for you. However you can apply for a copy. Have a good read through our section on Service Records below:

If you have any photos why not post them here as they may give clues.

If he landed at sword beach he could have been with 45 RMC 1st Special Service Brigade under the command of Lord Lovat. But as Pete says go for his service record.

Best wishes on your search.
