Hi Willie 
I am unable to add any information about David Halliwell. You have hit upon an area of research that often gives us more problems than any other. As you will know their are no locally held records particularly  Service Records for post WW2 personnel. Unlike WW1 personnel, where a considerable amount of information is available on line through numerous Web Sites and of course the National Archives, very little information of a personal nature or indeed any kind is avaliable to the military researcher relating to post WW2 personnel. Such information is only available by applying to the Historical Disclosures Office at the Army Records Office in Glasgow. In the main this can only be done by the individuals' NOK and a none refundable fee of £30 is charged for each ' search '. Life would be so much simpler if for example Battalion or Company nominal rolls were available say through the Fusilier Museum, Bury. Sadly no such records are known to exist. That's why all those years ago Joe had such difficulty in putting together the 1968 Orbat that appears on the Web Site. When it comes to post WW2 personnel then unless the family have documents providing information the only source of information in most cases is to go through the Army Records Office in Glasgow and apply for a copy of the individuals' Service Record.
Regards
Geoff Pycroft
