For anyone with British military ancestors, who is researching online, Military-Genealogy.com really is a ‘must’ site.
There are not many British families who didn’t have relatives who served in the armed forces in one or both World Wars. Sadly, many perished in the line of duty, with over 700,000 men and women who died, in the British Army alone, during the Great War.
Now, with the computerisation of various casualty and other important records, we are at last able to easily access essential facts about many of them.
