For the last ten years, on and off I’ve been piecing together my families First and Second World War activities.
My father was in the Royal Army Service Corp, I had two uncles who served in the RAF and a mysterious great uncle who was reputedly at Dunkirk before being sent to Burma. Going back to the First World War both my grandfathers were in the Yorkshire Regiment.

Trying to track wartime service can be a very frustrating process. Many WW1 British records have been lost, destroyed in the Blitz. When it comes to WW2 records personnel records are not in the public domain, but there is still a lot of information available to help tease out your ancestors service.
