Never managed to find my grandfather's WW1 details. Although he was a miner, I'm certain he was in the army, injured and then discharged. Today looking through old photos and docs I came across his National Registration card, which shows date of discharge as 1 Sept 1916 under Form B2079 which I think is medical discharge / no longer fit to serve.

Are there any record sites that allow searching incl discharge date?
TIA

You could try https://www.forces-war-records.co.uk as a start but I seem to remember that most of the records were destroyed in WW2

'In September 1940, as the result of a fire caused by an incendiary bomb at the War Office Record Store in Arnside Street, London, approximately two thirds of 6.5 million soldiers' documents for the First World War were destroyed.'
