    Having completed most of my family tree research I wanted to tie up some loose ends and in particular I want to get my Grandads service records. He died a week before I was born in 1966.
    Thomas Price was born 13/2/06 in Hulme Manchester and I believe he was in the Transport Corp ( according to my Dad).
    I dont know his service number, Regiment or how/when he left the Army.
    I have a photo of him in uniform from the War on home leave but there are no clues to his service / regiment etc.
    I have the forms to apply for his service record but will I need his regiment details etc to fnd his records???
    Any help really appreciated.................Thanks

    Not sure if this will help, there are a lot of Thomas, Price on this link. Hope this helps..... If you can find him in this database it will give you basic information including his service number.

    If your Grandfather didnt serve with U.S. forces then the link I posted will not help you. However you could try www.ww2talk.com they may be able to help you out.

    Please Wait...

    Try telephoning the appropriate number first, then you will have an idea as to what info they will want. I think you can get his records if you supply his Date and place of birth.
