The Forces War Records website is now offering an improved search facility, the new search engine means that searches can be undertaken by service number, specific years, nationality & type of service. Then there are filters that can be used depending on whether the person died in active service, were issued a gallantry award, or mentioned in despatches. This makes searching for military ancestors so much more efficient.
Forces War Records offers 4.5+ million records comprising service records, regimental/unit data, information on specific battles, medals, veteran contacts plus military tutorials specific to genealogy
A site worth considering when searching for your military ancestors.
