Can anyone help me. I am looking for more information on this person. I believe he would be either my Greatt Grandfather or Great Uncle. From info found i believe he was stationed in Italy and is buried in Sicily/Rome American Cemetery and Memorial.
To be able to find other information for my tree i need to know if this is correct.
Any information would be greatly recieved.

Regards Charlotte

Charlotte, it would be better to remove your email address as it is against Genes terms and conditions. People can contact you through Genes.

You won't find information online about your relative. As Kath has told you remove your email address, here's the link you require.

Charlotte, all service records after 1920 are still with MOD and not online.

It costs £30 to get the records and there may be a long wait. Heres's the link to help you.

Hope this helps

As he was in the US airforce, the MOD link given earlier is unlikely to be of use. That's for people who served in the British Forces.

This might help
