Hi Stewart,

You did not mention your fathers full name or his army rank?

There is also a list of some names and numbers on this website in the Burma Campaign section for the 7th Battalion - you will find a link to the Burma section on the home page of this website.
There is a Private A. Richards on this list with the army number 4542018 (he served with D Company of the 7th Battalion Worcestershire Regiment.
