I am looking for any information on my grandfather Sidney Hovell. This is how i was told it was spelt but looking at records it does bring up other initails before his name. I would like to know his servicenumber. I am not 100% sure but I think he was in the 1st Battalion within the worcestrshire regiment. He lived in Coughton on the boarder of warwickshire/worcestershire. He died in 1952 and my Dad was only 18 months so he has no information. I want to know what he did during the war years and if he was in the 1st battalion when it was caputure and some sent to POW camp. I am doing other searches. I am going to order his death certificate as I dont even know what he died of. I know so little about him.
Thanks in advance if anything comes up.
