Army service records are held by Service Number, Rank, Full Name and Date of Birth. It is important that as much of this information as possible is provided, together with the Regiment or Corps if known, to assist in locating the correct record.

Does not actually say you can not apply without the service number but obviously useful if you had it

I am hoping someone may be able to offer me some advice. I am quite new to this but have hit a brick wall. My father was in the Coldstream guards during the 50/60s and I was looking forward to finding out more about his army service. However as I cannot supply his regitmental number I have little hope of finding out anything about it.
So the long and short of it is Does anyone have any idea how I may find it or have any other suggestions on how I may apply for his details without it? Cheers :-(
