    Hi everyone. I've joined the forum in the hope of finding out more about the role played by my wife's uncle during WW2. His name was George Eli Staddon 1881658 and he was a Sapper in the Royal Engineers.We have visited his grave, but despite searches on Ancestry etc we cannot find any details as to where he might have served. I hope this is the correct forum to ask for details. Thanks in advance.

    Apply direct to the MoD for his service records.
    Get a copy of military service records
    That way you will find out what units he served in & when.
    Once you know who he was with you can look at the unit war diaries.
