    That seems to a number allocated to the Royal Fusiliers. He may have transferred to the RA. As Megan has explained, you need to apply to the MoD.

    You say you have his death certificate. I take it it doesn't mention soldier as his occupation. If you know his date of death and if there's nobody of that name listed on the CWGC site nor...
