HI Jan and Nadia,
Thank you for your messages. I picked up the phone t'other day to
call Mrs Goddard at the MOD re. my grandaddy Tadeusz Pundyk and while
I was waiting to be connected and thinking about how I could explain
myself effectively enough, I noticed that there is actually
no 'official requirement' for my father's death certificate on the
form they had sent me to prove that I am the next of kin, even though
this is what they said they required in their covering letter. All
that is required 'officially' is a copy of my grandfather's death
certificate (which I have). So...I scrapped the idea of the phone
call and instead decided to hedge my bets on the formalities of the
form. Fingers crossed!
