Thanks to the Mods for doing all the answering! I did look but can't see anything that seems unanswered. I apologise if any user has found the new design a bit confusing and I do appreciate very...

I believe that census's are locked for 100 years so it'll be at least 2021 until the next census is released online.
The site is still undergoing work I am afraid, so I apologise for any glitches whilst this is ongoing.
Hello all and welcome back to British Genealogy.
My sincere apologies for the extended down time we had yesterday, this was due to some rather urgent maintenance actions we had to take to ensure...

Field Punishment Number 1 was being tied to an immovable object for up to 2 hours a day and this could be a repeated punishment for up to 90 days if convicted at a courts martial.
Never assume a man would have joined a local regiment. This was completely turned on its head in WWI and from then until today men (and women) were/are placed where they are required.
Only in the...
A little known gem of a website and good friends of ours, the Icelandic 'uboat.net' have crew lists sometimes of sunk ships (by U Boats) here's the Anselm:...
Pam, Merchant Navy records are NOT part of the Royal Navy, they were a civilian service.
Most Merchant Navy stuff I've seen is at the national archives under the BT (Board of Trade) prefix.
Yes, my Uncle has the GSM with clasp and was only telling me about this last year when he flew back to the UK from Australia on a flying visit at the age of 90!
We visited Cyprus a few years back,...
There are two GSM medals the 1918 GSM and the 1962 GSM.
The clasp for service in Cyprus on the 1918 GSM is for service between 1st April – 18th April 1959 only.
The Later 1962 GSM Cyprus clasp is...
It is a boxing medal -so very unlikely to be included in any surviving military records per se I'm afraid. I'd agree the main records are likely to still be retained by the MOD.
If it mentioned KR then did it have a number after that?
Kings regulations are effectively the rule book for that service at that time and all the 'rules' have numbers and paragraphs which tell you...
Lesley, we can get TV channels (even the geo location locked ones) over the internet using a VPN software plug in.
Basically we use a amazon TV box at home with Kodi software installed and pay for a...
The MH106 records on FWR are the admissions/discharge registers, transcribed in full. The only other records within MH106 that FWR didn't touch were the detailed operations reports that pertain to...
He can't have a WWI record if he was born in 1902.
His service records will still be retained by the MOD.
Thanks Peter, that's odd as I definitely made a bee-line for MAF, but ho hum!
I'll take a look at that next time I visit.
I did some trawling through the NA at Kew a few years back.
There were a few files (and I do mean 2/3 only) with committee reports and stuff like that and one or two copies of the magazine 'the...
I would try the local archives to where he lived.
In my experience these sort of records usually end up in the local archives.
That's interesting Peter, as the FOI request was specifically for ALL those included over 100 at the date.
In which case the MOD failed to comply with the FOI request!
The same index (or at least the same source) is FREE on Forces war records and named correctly too.
The majority of transcriptions we see for indexing purposes are done abroad in countries where English is a second language at best, that coupled with no geographical or historical vernacular...
I read a wonderful book by Eric Newby a few years back 'love & war in the Appenines' which was a really interesting story from a great writer about his experiences along the same...
If by 'information he wrote on return' you mean the Mi-IX (Mi9) interrogation reports then these are under reference WO344 at Kews national archives.
Not all men returning completed one however,...
This is the reference of the Mi9 interrogation file.
Wo344 is the section.
It doesn't guarantee he has one (many did not complete these...
The FWR POW listings are all from specific collections, it does state very clearly what will be included in records from the collections list page -before payment however.
POW camp listings tend to...
