FREE ACCESS DURING REMEMBRANCE WEEK
From 7th-14th November Ancestry.co.uk is making the following
records free to view:
British Army WW1 Service and Pension records
WW1 Medal Index cards 1914-1920
Ancestry.co.uk has also announced further expansion of its existing military
collection by launching online four million UK military medal records dating
from 1793 to 1972 Included in this new collection are decoration details of
those who fought in some of Britain's most famous military campaigns, including
the Battle of Waterloo, the Napoleonic Wars, both World Wars, the Indian Mutiny,
the Crimean and Boer Wars. Also included are records of historic conflicts in
Iraq and Afghanistan, mirroring the British military campaigns of today.
Typically the records reveal the name of the soldier, campaign, regiment,
regimental number, medal or award entitlement and occasionally detailed
citations of why the medal was awarded.
Please note these records are not free to view.
