Advice offered on all Areas of Military Research

Have you ever wondered what Dad or Granddad did during the War?  Do you have relatives who served in the Army, the Navy or the Air Force about whom you'd like to know more?  I can help.  Do get in touch via the Contact form below, let me know what you'd like to find out, and I can advise you from there.

World War One

World War One & Before

Is your man a Victorian Redcoat?  Did he sail with Nelson's Navy?  And what remains for WW1 soldiers after enemy action destroyed so many Army records during the London Blitz?  Whether your man is an Officer or an Other Rank, I can advise.  War diaries, civilian records and census returns, campaign and gallantry medals...

World War Two & After

Ministry of Defence service papers, war diaries, campaigns, medal entitlement, Civilian War Dead, the 1939 Register, Prisoners of War... those who came home and those who did not.  

Every man, woman and child who lived through the World Wars has a story; everyone deserves to be remembered.
