His military record won't be online because it will be too recent. You would have to apply to the MOD. But we might be able to find some information.

Can you explain what you mean by tracing his family, please? Forwards or backwards?

The Marseille roundup was the systematic deportation of the Jews of Marseille in the Old Port between 22 and 24 January 1943 under the Vichy regime during the German occupation of France. Assisted by the French police, directed by René Bousquet, the Germans organized a raid to arrest Jews. The police checked the identity documents of 40,000 people, and the operation sent 2,000 Jews first to Fréjus, then to the camp of Royallieu near Compiègne, in the Northern Zone of France, and then to Drancy internment camp, last stop before the extermination camps. The operation also encompassed the expulsion of an entire neighborhood (30,000 persons) before its destruction. Located in the Old Port, the 1st arrondissement was considered by the Germans to be a "terrorist nest" because of its small, windy and curvy streets[3] For this occasion, SS leader Carl Oberg, in charge of the German Police in France, made the trip from Paris, and transmitted to Bousquet orders directly received from Himmler. It is a notable case of the French police's collaboration with the German occupiers.

I didn't realise the germans were already in Marseille . and they destroyed a lot of property , They kept the wealthy areas . but they had a new ideology to create a new urban city , with the french Mayor .So i don't know what happened to aubrey and his wife . if they had children i may not find out who they are as they have the same non disclosure policy's for a 100 years . thanks
