Does anyone know how I can find out which regiment (and ultimately the battles and campaigns) my father might have signed up with during WWII. As he did not like to talk about the war, he told us nothing about the part he played except that a German farmer's wife hid him in a barn and made him boiled egg (his first for two years). So, I know he was in Germany at one point.
I know he signed up in Aberdare in 1939 and did not come home until 1946. I would imagine that as a stone mason / builder/ carpenter he would have come in handy to build bridges etc.
Hope someone can point me in the right direction.
