WW2 Service records.


Loyal Member

In Ireland, but from Bucks.
I have just recieved back, my application for my Uncle Charles Thomas's service records.
In my haste to send off the application, I misread the instructions asking me to include a £30 search fee.
Also, I was informed that there is no guarentee of anything of importance being in those records.

Their words

1). Medals and award citations are never included.
2). Only rarely does a file contain a soldiers photo.
3). We have no way of knowing what a file holds.
4). If the search does not uncover the service record, no fee is refundable. But every concievable effort is made to find the records in question.

a). Have any forum members ever had the worst case scenario.
b). Was the info recieved better or worse than expected.
c). Was it helpful in finding other relatives.

Give me/us your thoughts.:)
