Dear Ministry of Defence,

Do you have service records for my grandad during ww2. His name was Alfred Winstanley, born in Liverpool 1919, he was in the pioneer corps serving in Egypt and England.

Yours faithfully,
Martin Winstanley

I am not with the MOD, but I know that you can't get service records through a FoI request.

To get them, see this page on the Government's website:

There is a £30 fee, and it can take several months before you get the records (when I got my grandad's records, it took about 2 months).

Good luck!
