    As you have found there are not a great many online records regarding WW2 service due to time limits imposed for the release of records.

    I believe that as a direct descendant of your Grandfather you can apply for his Service Record via the MOD here in Britain and this will obviously carry a cost.

    Try posting your enquiry on the British Medal Forum if you get no other replies, they should be able to assist.

    Sorry can't be more helpful,

    Try applying here https://www.gov.uk/get-copy-military-service-records/apply-for-someone-elses-records

    You'll need to fill out a Request Form and a Search Form but if you don't have your grandfather's service number you might not get far. The search form does stipulate service number and/or date of birth must be included.

    Another problem could be payment, when I applied for my grandfather's record I had to arranged for a relative in the UK to make payment for me as it had to be in Sterling.
