If it's WW2, it's a no go. WW2 records must be applied for,, with a copy if death cert of the deceased, and fee.

When you first joined the forum in September you posted a message also entitled 'Hi all', to which I replied, giving details about service records for personnel who served after 1922 still being held by the Ministry of Defence, with link to a forum post which gives more background and also links to sending for those records.
I also told you where to find existing service records for personnel who left the forces before 1922.
I also explained that the records on FWR usually relate to a specific part of a person's service, e.g. if they were a prisoner of war.
