Dear Ministry of Defence,

Hello I'm trying to get service records form my Uncle Leslie Hayde. He served in the 2nd battalion of the Royal East Kent Regiment. I don't know his service number or DOB but I've found many pictures of him with the Regiments cross country team in 1935, 36 and 38 but then he disappears from their monthly magazine in 1938. can you tell me how I can access or order a copy his records so I can find out what happened to him? My parents told us he was killed in the war but that's all I know.
