Royal Artillery collections hit the web
Genealogists exploring connections to the Royal Artillery may be able to uncover new leads following the online launch of two sets of records
Family historians tracing their links to the Royal Artillery may be able to uncover new leads following the online publication of two collections of records.
The datasets, available to explore at www.findmypast.co.uk, include a total of more than 37,000 entries. The first nominal roll features details of men serving in the Royal Artillery who were awarded military medals in the years between 1916 and 1993, while the second covers officers and men decorated for gallantry during the Second World War. All of the records can be searched by first name and surname.
The collections are the latest in a series of updates to the site in recent weeks, and follow releases including a set of thousands of Manchester military records. For more on tracking down ancestors who served in the British Army, don't miss the military special issue of Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine, on sale until next Monday, 19 March.
