This book from the National Archives Is an update, by the same author, of a book with a very similar title published by the National Records Office in 2000.
The book deals mainly with how to trace a person or unit in some cases going back to the 1700s and progressing to the present time.Some records are origional while others are on microfische or digitalised.
Apart from dealingwith officers and other ranks there are sections on medals,court- marshals,colonial and dominion forces,foreign troops,war crimes and research techniques.
A truly remarkable book.If the National Archives does not have the name it did not exist.
The author has written several other excellent military books.
