Default British war service records/Wingate's raiders

I was talking with an old friend and co-worker today at work about WW11 and what our fathers did in that war. I told him that he could find out alot on the internet.
He asked me to help him to find out more about his father in WW11.So here I am asking some questions.
His father was British Army. Joined 1939 ,Servered in North Africa , far east and then with Wingate's Raiders.
He has his fathers pay book,[has to find it though].His father died in the '70's. I suggested appling to get his records from the UK gov. So I need a site to go to in the UK to get a application form.
Also ,does anyone on this forum know of any of the Wingate's sites that give alot of photos.Also,at this point ,I only know the last name and that is: Hopson.
Thanks for any help and info.
