Service records

Ian Fox made this Freedom of Information request to Ministry of Defence

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by Ministry of Defence.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

I wrote recently to ask if the MOD had the service records for my late grandfather, we had believed that his regiment was the Ox and Bucks as he had lived in Buckinghamshire, however he had moved to Watford in Hertfordshire and had enlisted there.
Therefore we now believe that the correct regiment was Beds and Herts.

Given that we know he served in India, Hong Kong / Burma, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Libya and Italy as a field ambulance driver, we think he must have been part of the 1st battalion Beds and Herts.

Charles Frank Setterfield was born in Kent on 19/04/1914, enlisting in 1939, we do not know his service number.

If you could supply any information it would be greatly appreciated.

Yours faithfully,
Ian Fox
