    Default Looking for details of Arnold Barnicoat

    Hi,
    I am not a blood relative, only a neighbour with a keen interest in genealogy, having gone back 6 generations of my family from India. Also have a keen interest in WW2, I am also ex Indian Army Medical Corps.
    My neighbour Janice Best is looking for details of her father, who was in the Royal Engineers, and evacuated from Dunkirk.
    His name: Arnold Chesterfield Barnicoat
    Rank: Sergeant Major
    Born in Tregonay near Truro
    DOB: 16/03/2013
    Any info welcome; she has lost his medals too.
    Thanks in advance

    Hi

    If she is interested in his service, then she can apply for his service records here - https://www.gov.uk/get-copy-military-service-records
    It does cost and she will need his death certificate and/or service number. Ask for his full service records.
    She can also ask MOD Medals for his medal entitlement and purchase replacements - https://www.gov.uk/apply-medal-or-veterans-badge
    Just write to the address on the form (or ring them) and tell them you just want to know his full entitlement.

    regards

    Robert
