Postby Vivienne » Wed Aug 03, 2016 4:11 pm

We are trying to find information on Horace Arthur Riches known as Tom born 1903 in Norfolk we are trying to find out his regiment in WW2 and/or his service number we know he survived the war but would like to put some history behind the medals we have. The photo is of him maybe taken in India but that could be just hearsay if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated

Have you considered applying for a copy of his service record ? You will need his date of birth, and possibly a death certificate (depending on your relationship and the information you want).

They can be very detailed.

Obviously the more info you have the better - but the minimum information required for a search is the full name and the date of birth OR service number.
