18 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Chris Baker VINE VOICE on 9 July 2004
Format: Paperback
Researching a soldier of the British Army of 1914-1918 is no easy task. The records that survive are incomplete and full of military jargon that is difficult for the uninitiated. Most of the records are held at the National Archives in Kew, London, and this book gives good guidance to what is available and how to make effective use of search time. For anyone trying to do this it is an essential work, although much of what is here is available in a set of free-of-charge leaflets available at the National Archives itself. Some areas are covered in great depth: for example, the way to find and interpret medal records. But others are given much more superficial treatment. An example is records of British POWs. Overall I rate this a good and worthwhile buy for anyone just beginning to research a soldier.

Format: Paperback
William Spencer's 'Army Service Records of the First World War' is an invaluable tool for anyone researching the First World War. It provides guidance on interpretating the service records of the men and women who served in the British and Indian armies,the Dominion forces,the Royal Flying Corp/Royal Air Force and the medical and nursing services.

Also includes guidance on researching the records of Courts martial, prisoners of war, and awards for gallantry and camaign medals. There is useful information on sources other than the Public Records Office and a section on interpretating trench maps and other maps.
