Morning, I trust everyone is safe and well.
I am currently doing research for my 95 year old grandfather, who will be 96 in August.
Ronald served in the army having joined in the spring of 1943 - he would have been demobbed in the summer of 1947- but he signed on again in 1956- 9 and there is a record him still in during 1962-65. He served with the Royal Signals. During his time he received a Mention In Dispatches in November 1945. I have found a clipping of this from the London Gazette, which only gives you his name, number and date. I was wondering if there is anyway to find more details on this.
He was also issued a letter from the King for a particular reason, but as he is getting on he is losing some of his memory, which is to be expected. He calls himself a silly old fool. This letter used to be framed in the house but they can no longer remember where this has gone. I am wondering if there is any way of getting details for this.
I was going to register for Forces War Records subscription, but after reading reviews on here and other sites I'm saving my money. I currently have an Ancestry Sub and also a My Heritage sub, I must admit the My Heritage is not that good.
I know I can go through the MOD as he is still alive, but that seems like a long process and with the current situation, will probably be even longer. So, I have turned to the delightful people on this site who may maybe able to help.
His details are: L/Cpl Ronald K Suttle (Ron)
Royal Signals
I really hope someone can help as I've pretty much exhausted all routes so far.
I have my Grandfather's consent to ask this.

I feel your best route would be through the official UK Government route:
The only way this site could be of help is if someone knew your grandfather personally.
