Findmypast Browse Records: Military

Postby Maureene » 25 Jul 2016 09:12

Findmypast have introduced a new dataset called "British Army Service Records Image Browse", located in Armed forces & conflict/ Service Records

The direct link is ... age-browse

This is a browse facility for some of the records located in the findmypast dataset "British Army Service Records", so there are two separate, but related datasets.

The records which can be browsed are the following record series from The National Archives
WO 22 - Royal Hospital Chelsea: returns of payment of Army and other pensions 1842-1883
WO 23 - Royal Hospital Chelsea: admission books, registers, and papers 1702-1876
WO 76 - Regimental records of officers' services 1775-1914
WO 96 - Militia service records 1806-1915
WO 97 – Chelsea: pensioners British Army service records 1760-1913
WO 121 - Chelsea: pensioners' discharge documents 1760-1887
WO 122 - Chelsea: pensioners' discharge documents, foreign regiments 1816-1817
WO 128 - Imperial Yeomanry, soldiers' documents, South African War 1899-1902
WO 131 - Chelsea: documents of soldiers awarded deferred pensions 1838-1896
WO 400 - The Household Cavalry 1801-1919

Perhaps the browse facility may be useful if you are researching a particular topic, rather than individual people.

Could prove something I have suspected for a while - their WO128 IY Service Papers are incomplete. Using this facility they appear to be missing pieces 70-79 (at least).
