    Hello and welcome, lots of 56 Recce interest here and a good deal of information. Have you sent off for his service records, these should give you the full facts of his service? Get a copy of military service records: Overview - GOV.UK

    Interested in your mention of Palestine, not sure that the 56 went there, they did go to Egypt in Summer '44.

    Hello and a warm welcome to the forum:). Lovely to have you here on the forum.
    My dad was in 56 Recce too and was in C Squadron.

    I see you are in good hands already with other 56'ers. Have you any photos of your father you could post please? Members are always very interested in seeing them. Look forward to your postings.
