Can anyone help... I can't find any information on the above person in any war records. He was my mother's father and i have done my dads side of the tree and i'm wanting to continue with my mothers side. He's war number was VX1461. I think he was SAS, i can't remember.
 Thanks in advance

Well that's why i can't find any information! They have all obviously spelt his name wrong or my pop was lying lol on his tomb stone is says Mcneill....*sigh.. Thank you kindly. It's a start :D

Jacqueline,  I could also be incorrect on his headstone - best find his birth & marriage to check the spelling but as he would have filled out his application to join WW2 he may have spelt it that way or otherwise it is a transcription error - you will find out when you get the full record

 

good luck and if you need any help with BDM records let me know

Jacqueline,  Found this as well about his father which might help a bit - needs to be double checked for accuracy

You're such a good sport Elizabeth :D much appreciated. I found my pop's dad (james henry)'s war records, and that as far as i can find. I have asked my uncles and mother if they know more but they don't really. So i'm surfing around in circles lol. I really do appreciate your help :D

Thank you
