Include all the details you can find, and explain that it is a DPA request. If they can action it, they will. If not, they will pass it on via historical record requests.

It will cost you £30 and don't expect too much detail, especially if He served during WW2

Don't bet on it costing - I know for a fact that sometimes a lot of info is passed out for free! Even if they can't get you all the details you want, they have the right contacts!

Some good points of contact are the Veteran's Agency and The Royal British Legion County Field Officer's Welfare Officer - they have all the right addresses for ex-Servicemen's details

PS - I use them all the time in my current occupation for this sort of information
