advice on finding out which tests my father was involved in

My father now passed, was a Royal marine, serving on Christmas island. JOHN BOOTH, he spoke with great affection, of his time on the island, but he never looked back, and never wanted to know what had happened to his mates,(which I now can understand). I never spoke in detail with him, over which particular blasts he witnessed, I only thought there was 1, apparently not. If anyone remembers him, and could help provide any details, I'd be very grateful. I don't even have his service number, so am out on a limb. I know he was working on the landing crafts. Any advice anyone can give me in order to find out more about his time on the island would be helpful, thank you
