Hello there, have you read the Tutorials on the Forces-war-records.co.uk website? You may find that the service record you are reserarching is still held by the MoD.
Addresses are provided in the tutorials for you to obtain copies. Sadly only the Service Person or their Direct Next of Kin can apply for copies.
