WW2 records are probably still with the MOD and will cost £30 and many months to access.

The National Archives may give you some guidance

Ann,

Try this site.

https://www.gov.uk/requests-for-personal-data-and-service-records

You need to look for and read this section on the page that opens:

"Request for Service records of deceased Service personnel"
