Hi Everyone!

My name is Mike - From Yorkshire, England. I have relatives that served in both world wars and I'm hoping to find out a bit more on how to research them. One of my WW2 relatives (of whom I have a picture and medals) served in WW2 although I have no army number - so am trying to find a way to access his records..

Will post onto one of the forums for help soon..

Mike, welcome to the forum! I'm sure you can find some rouges who can give you a hand with your search.

Wars are rarely fought in black and white, but in infinite shades of grey

Welcome aboard, Mike. Glad to have you here. :D

Freedom is precious and many gave their lives for it. It is the duty of the future generation
to remember that sacrifice, and offer some sacrifice for themselves if Freedom is threatened.
