Expert knowledge at your disposal

We transcibe military personnel records from a vast array of sources, many of which are untapped by anyone else, and unavailable anywhere else on the internet. Our archive has been built from sources such as the following.

  • National and Local Archives
  • Military Museums
  • Official Army, Navy and Royal Air Force lists
  • Rare books such as university or company rolls of honour
  • Battalion histories

Our archive also includes thousands of rare books, magazines and other documents, all of which are available for you to view online. Many of these contain mentions of service personnel, but all of which contain fascination insights in to the life of a soldier, sailor and airman.

We then combine the personal records with more specialist information about regiments, ships, squadron and son on, to help you piece together your ancestor's military journey.

We also use our vast knowledge of military matters, to intelligently make suggestions about where your ancestor may have served, what campaign medals they may have been entitled to and much more.

The extra clues we give you can be invaluable when trying to piece together the detail of your ancestor's service.
