5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST FOR FAMILY HISTORY RESEARCHERS 6 May 2006
I thought that this splendid, compact volume was packed full of useful information and is an excellent tool for anyone interested in researching their ancestors from the Second World War period. It is written by an expert with over twenty years experience in this particular area of research,and therefore it provides a wealth of information that will be invaluable for both the beginner and more experienced researcher alike.

There are many people who may say that certain archive information may not yet be available in the public domain for another decade or more. There is of course some truth in this, however this excellent title provides evidence that information is obtainable and therefore provides valuable information for veterans and their next of kin, as to where they can write and obtain copies of service records and medal entitlements etc.

As one would expect, there is a great deal of interest in those members of our families who served in the armed forces, however we should not forget the thousands of men and women who served in the civilian services such as the Police, Ambulance and Fire Brigades, the Merchant Navy, Home Guard and Women's Land Army - all of whom, played an important role and supported the war effort in one form or another and therefore the records of their service is as interesting too and once again invaluable to our overall research.

As well as explaining the finer details of individual service records, the author has also provided information on the records also available that cover various individual unit actions, casualties and prisoners of war.
