Service number

Exford near MINEHEAD

I am trying to obtain my late fathers Service Records from the MOD but I need to supply his Service Number, I have checked all my family paperwork to no avail and now having searched on-line I can find no record.

Any idea where I can look now?

Many thanks
Not sure which son of Walter & Rosetta was your father, James Walter b 1914 or Leslie Herbert b 1916?

The Royal Artillery Attestations on FindMyPast give the service number of James Walter as 1840175 (attested 1941). There are no details for Leslie but the data only goes up to 1942 so if he joined up later than that or was in a different branch of the forces he won't be there. I don't know how you would find it in that case.
