    I'm looking for the army records of Harold Hinett during WW2. He was born 01/01/1917 in Bradford,Manchester died 1986/87. He was a cook in the army based in Welbeck, Nottinghamshire. Thank you

    You can apply for a copy from the Veterans Agency. :)

    I think, but am not 100% sure, that his records will still be with the MOD.

    Someone will be along to either confirm or dispel that assumption.

    I think you're right, Chimp.

    Next of kin may obtain the records free of charge.

    Thanks everyone for your replies. I'm advised that someone has a photograph of him in uniform which should help.
