Hi Linda,

If your father migrated after the war, shouldn't you be looking for his service records in Greece?

There are immigration records which you can purchase copies of and which may relate to your father.  Just search for his surname.

Hi Linda

I apologise for the delay in responding to your posting.  I conducted a search of our online database RecordSearch and found that we do not have a service record for your father.  The National Archives of Australia only holds records for the Australian defence forces.  If your father came to Australia under an assisted migration scheme, or if he obtained Australian citizenship, the National Archives of Australia may have record relating to his selection for migration or his application for naturalisation.  If you would like to follow up on this, you can submit an inquiry online using the online form at http://reftracker.naa.gov.au/reft100.aspx?key=03ImmiRef and one of our reference officers will make a search of the collection on your behalf.

Best of luck in your search

Tonia
