CHARITABLE ADVERTISING on Web Site There are many worthwhile charitable causes in existence, but we can only accept sponsorship or fundraising efforts on Fusilier Association websites, that specifically support approved Fusilier charities. This essentially means that it is acceptable to use these pages to seek sponsorship for The Fusiliers Aid Society (which includes Fallen Fusiliers), and The Fusilier Memorial fund only. We now have our own dedicated justgiving site (http://www.justgiving.com/fusiliersaidsociety), which you can use to help raise money for your cause. If you let RHQ (Asst Regt Sec) know the specific cause you are raising money for, it will be directed to the correct fund. Messages soliciting sponsorship for causes or charities other than the Fusilier ones mentioned above should not be placed on the message board and may be removed by the Webmaster. PUTTING A MESSAGE ON A STRING PLEASE PUT YOUR MESSAGE AT THE END OF THE STRING NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STRING IT MAKES THE STRING EASIER TO FOLLOW. FROM NOW ON IF YOU DON'T PUT YOUR MESSAGE AT THE END OF THE STRING IT WILL BE DELETED Messages Messages posted in the last 24 hrs. are in White.

Good Evening Ian
Welcome to the LF Web Site.
Your Uncle is shown on the CWGC Web Site and is buried in the Santerno Valley War Cemetery, Italy. He was the son of William and Beatrice Wood of Heaton Mersey. I assume you have seen the entry?
He was a member of the 2nd Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers. If you go the the Home Page of the LF Website and click up the button shown "Postings Gallery" it will bring up a list of all LF Battalions. Click on the 2nd Bn and you can read a vast amount of information regarding their movement and actions during WW2.
The Service Records of WW2 Veterans are not held locally and you would have to make a personal application to the Historical Disclosures Office of the Army Records Office in Glasgow. I have placed a link below that gives information on how to apply. You will need to submit a copy of his death certificate with the application. The search fee of 30 is payable irrespective of the result and should be attached to the application. It would normally take up to 12 weeks to obtain a Service Record but given the current virus difficulties applications may be subject to delay.
Regards
Geoff Pycroft
