Vital information

This gallery gives hints on how to trace the records of those serving in the British forces. It provides links to The National Archives' research guides that give information on specific subjects.

The records described in this gallery are, unless otherwise stated, available for personal consultation at The National Archives at Kew. If you wish to visit the The National Archives, then please read details of opening hours and access conditions in the visit us section.

None of the records described here are available on the internet although you can search the Catalogue to see what holdings may be viewed on our premises. Some of the records have been microfilmed and thus it is possible that some may be available for consultation elsewhere than The National Archives, possibly through a branch family history library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints - their catalogue is also available on the internet.
