WW1 records are on Ancestry, they are not on GR Be aware that 70% of these records were destroyed in WW2

WW2 records are not in the public domain,they are still held by the MOD/ RAF/Royal Navy, whichever branch you are seeking, and only available to the person themselves or NOK which has to be proven

Have a look at this link it explains all.

Edit
If you dont subscribe to Ancestry
If you give some details of your uncle im sure it can be looked at to see if his record exists

Hello George

Thank you so much for your valued information.

Since my posting I have had contact with another member, who has kindly offered to search for me.

It is all a bit daunting for me, but how interesting it has been so far.

Thank you again

Best Wishes Donald G. Chapman
