    He has no records within the Fourth Register so they will be in the Fifth Register held at Kew - his CRS 10 - service record - beginning January 1941 until leaving the service should be held in piece BT 382/947

    He has a seamans pouch held at Kew in piece BT 372/607/43
    He has another pouch - COMNO - Combined Office Merchant Navy Operations - which is a record for the ship he would have been on for service at Normandy 1944 or beyond. Held in BT 391/58/161

    Regards

    I would like to think that given the documents they will be reasonable about the price but I am not so sure. Obviously using their services is the most expensive option. Good luck.

    Standard £8.40 for a page check but I have no idea what the extra costs will be depending on what they find. If it ends up extortionate I,ll make arrangements to go to Kew myself I,m due a trip down South.
