    Default Find My Past Military files free access for limited period

    "Free military records in honor of Memorial Day

    Findmypast.com wants you to honor the brave veterans in your family tree. All US and international military records can be accessed for no charge from Friday, May 24 to Monday, May 27. No code required or payment information taken just register on our site.

    "

    The access allows US/Aus/UK/Ire etc files.

    eg
    GRO WAR DEATHS R.A.F.ALL RANKS (1939 to 1948)

    This will probably give a unit to those named on overseas memorial without a unit detail on the CWGC site.

    Register and fill your boots.

    Regards

    For example an old thread

    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?14001-Two-recorded-losses-on-EL-ALAMEIN-MEMORIAL

    Sgt Causer no unit in CWGC but in GRO it gives No.76 OTU

    The rest of the thread is an example of the power of this forum to use this meagre info to produce results.

    Regards
    Ross

    The GRO list is clearly being treated differently, I could get free access to the military records but was asked to pay for GRO indexes.
