i WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD ASSIST WITH ANY INFORMATION ON THE FOLLOWING PERSON, HE WAS MY UNCLE AND PASSED AWAY LAST YEAR HIS GRANDSON IS NOW TRYING TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT HIM. WE KNOW LITTLE ABOUT HIS MILITARY SERVICE AND WOULD LOVE TO KNOW ABOUT WHAT HE DID AND WHERE HE WENT.

Edward Francis Murphy

DOB 01/06/1938

Think he served with C Sqn in Aden
Was in Regt Boxing team 1960
I WOULD BE VERY GRATEFUL OF ANYTHING YOU COULD PASS ON AND AM SURE IT WOULD BE GREATLY RECEIVED BY HIS FAMILY.
MANY THANKS 
Tony

I have told him to look at www.gov.uk and search service records. If anyone has done it maybe they could let us know how they got on. Takes six months I believe and cost £30 unless close relative. Freddy

Tony a few years ago I did a request for my Dads service record etc with the Royal Navy at Portsmouth,they took about 3 months before I got his wartime and the rest of his stuff ,decorations etc allowed me to apply for medals as he had never applied. It's well worth it to see/read what your kin did in the service, Google was very useful but you need his military number ,best of luck
