Never found that site to be much good Tomarse, they always seem to want you to pay a subscription to view a record.I did out of curiosity run though their records 15 pages + a few other ones they had lists for and guess what Gfather is not listed. th_lmao1-vi.gif
He was Robert Barnett,TA before the war began Glamorgan Yeomanry. Then Army supply Corps (ASC) and then transferred to the Welch Regt.
I have found his medal card with the basic Victory and British war medals issued: NA ref, WO 372/2 image ref 250418/9201.
I would love to find his service record, but twice i have emailed, 1 to NA and they never bothered to reply and once to a research guy who said he THOUGHT they were all destroyed in WW11. poop.gif
I never met him as he died under tragic circumstances in 1943, appears he liked his drink (as it appeared a lot of them did) Got pi**d and fell under a bus during the blackout.
