Ministry of Defence finding aid/Ancestry database

Postby MaureenE » Thu Apr 20, 2017 2:55 pm

In a previous post, I mentioned a finding aid issued by the Ministry of Defence, in respect of those officers and soldiers born before 1901, which will indicate whether MOD holds a service file or not.

There is now a database on Ancestry “UK, Military Indexes, 1920-1971” which is very likely to be the same MOD database, although Ancestry doesn’t give the source .


Edit: The Ancestry database is now called "UK, Military Discharge Indexes, 1920-1971"
