    Default Service files - current state of play

    I thought I'd seen a recent thread about the current situation in respect of service files, and the time frame for receiving the documents . If there is one I cannot find it, but I'm simply wondering what the present delay is between making a request and receiving the documents.

    My apologies if this has been discussed previously.

    Thank you Andrew, it's probably the one I had in mind but I stupidly used 'Service' instead of 'Personnel' - obviously me having a senior moment. So it's personnel files from Cranwell I'm thinking of.

    Brian,

    Someone on the British Medals Forum posted the following in late June:

    "I've just received my latest set of service records from RAF Disclosures Team: request posted on 6 January 2021, cheque cashed on 8 February 2021 and papers received on 22 June 2021. The acknowledgement email I received said that requests were taking up to 6 months to process but could take longer."

    Many thank, Jonny, just what I was after. It's just that I had this thought at the back of my mind that I'd seen a post that matters were improving after the initial delays caused by the first lockdown and continuing pandemic.
