Thanks, but I logged on with my previous free trial account, I could access the military records without taking out another trial. Found what I wanted, though too scanty details.

Would this have World War 2 records as well?

Cheers mate, my great Grandad died in the somme and I've been wanting to look him up

The records are scanty and few for WW2, so I wouldn't pay subscription for this, as I was disappointed finding just one record, I read on their web site (Ancestry) this subsequently, user may be disappointed to find the limited availability of equivalent service records for World War II. The reason being that the records of Britain’s Army, Navy and Air Force are still classified documents held by the Ministry of Defence.

thanx
