How do I find information on a British Private who died in Thailand in 1943? Answered

A relative took a photo of a grave in Thailand, and my family believes it could be my husband's great Uncle. Who do I contact to get more information about who he was? I have his Private number and which regiment he was in, and a date from the headstone

Great lead, but unfortunately we need permission from next of kin to access the records from this site (as from most military sites). At this point we are trying to find out if he is a relative, by getting date/place of birth etc. Thanks anyway.

. Most armies/governments have a department that deals with just this kind of thing. Try calling anyone at your equivalent of the Department Of Defense and they should be able to give you the name of the office. . Good luck.

you would need to contact the historical sosciety, an d the military. The military might not give you the information though.
