You could post a request on the Royal Pioneer Corps Association website

Without a DOB, it's unlikely that your sister could obtain his service records.
Is the query related to a presumed father?? If so, what other info is known about him - age in 1944/45, home area etc? Could her mother remember the names of any siblings mentioned in conversation, or his parents names?
