Croucher - Kent

I have found most of my ancestors within this family name however recently came across the following and having delved into it discovered it was my father's cousin. I am going to write to the Grenadier Guards to see if they have any further information, is there anything else I can do? I do think that Albert married and had a daughter Diane. :)

Major Albert R. Croucher MBE - .died 4th. December 2000 aged 91yrs. Gained an emergency commission into the DCLI in October 1942 having previously served in the Grenadier Guards. His first appointment was as Camp Commandant to 10th. Infantry Brigade. Six months later he was appointed QM. of 2 DCLI in North Africa and stayed with them while they fought their way through Italy and then to Greece. When the war ended he was posted back to the UK, awarded an MBE and granted a regular QM. commission. He then did a tour as Camp Commandant at Colchester, followed by QM. of 4th/5th Bn. (TA) and then to 1DCLI in Jamaica. His final tour, which lasted for a number of years, was as the QM. at the Regimental Depot in Bodmin. He saw through the amalgamation and the final closure of Victoria Barracks in 1962 when it was then the Regimental Depot of the SCLI.
