    Paul,

    Did a bit more belly button thinking to consider the implications of the transfer and posted this over on WW2 Talk. Copied here for info.

    There have been a few releases post 1921 to AIR79 - the last batch in 2014 that was for RAF Halton Boy Apprentice induction of 1928.

    This accorded with the MoD publication assumption of alive until 116 years after birth so all subject personal details will not be redacted - but 3rd party such as NoK will.

    Looking ahead it does mean that there will be a few years of limbo when the TNA is processing them they will not be available from any source. All we can do is wait to see how long it take the first batch from 2021 to be released then use this as a guide.

    As we get below the 115 years since birth I cannot see the TNA revising redaction on a yearly basis so expect either some blanket redaction or outright closure until 115 years

    What we can consider is roughly when each age group records will no longer be available from Disclosures. 116 years ago is DoB 1905. so 6 tranches covering 1905 to 1939.

    DoB range
    1905 - 1910 release to TNA 2021
    1911 - 1916 release to TNA 2022
    1917 - 1922 release to TNA 2023
    1923 - 1928 release to TNA 2024
    1929 - 1934 release to TNA 2025
    1935 - 1939 release to TNA 2026

    So by my rough calculation we will loose access to the early war induction/conscription group of DoB 1920 to 1924 through Disclosures between 2023 and 2024 for an undetermined time.

    Get your research applications in next year peeps.

    Hi all, I would like to share my own experience.
    My fist online "guinea-pig" request submitted on 31.12.21, confirmed on 5.1.22 and the record obtained on 18.1.22.
    The record was for a person who died more than 25 years ago and served during WWII and also post-war.
    Personal information has been blackened, but units history + promotions OK.
