Ministry of Defence old files

Ministry of Defence | Defence News | Defence Policy and Business | Public asked for their views on transfer of historic records: "Members of the public are being asked for their views on the process the Ministry of Defence has developed to transfer to The National Archives records of soldiers, sailors and airmen who served in the Armed Forces between the two World Wars and for those who were members of the Home Guard during the Second World War.

The department transferred First World War service records to The National Archives in the 1990s and these have proved a popular resource with family and military historians alike.

But the opening of records at The National Archives needs to ensure that personal data is handled in accordance with data protection legislation and has the support and confidence of the public."
