What an amazing site! I’ve seen more suitable information here than anywhere else!
My dad was a Coldstream Guard, but attached to the parachute regiment, this is as far as it goes, he never was much of a talker about the War. He died in 2002 and I’m looking for his service records.
14859131 (service Number?) CPL D V Caton Coldm. Gds this is on the side of his GSM with Palestine clasp.
He also has, however, his name isn’t on any of them:
1939 – 1945 Star
The Italy Star
The France and Germany Star
The Defence Medal
The 1939 – 1945 Medal
Would anyone be able to advise where to go next, please?
