Hi, If your dad is now deceased and your mother is alive she can claim his Army service records free of charge from the british Army from http://www.veterans-uk.info/service_records/army.html If both your parents are deceased you can claim your fathers SERVICE RECORDS if you are the next of kin this will cost £30 (the records usually show where he served and what training he had). You need to know his service number or his exact date of birth. And send a copy of his death certificate. Likewise there is a link on the site where you can write and see what medals he was intitled to, claimed and unclaimed. If there are any unclaimed you as next of kin can claim them. Good luck
