Hi All

Is there anywhere on Ancestry to search for soldiers who won awards, like the MM ?

Cheers

For those who did not survive, I had a search option for awards on my search engine for a while - but nobody used it so it was removed.

I found my man in London Gazette. When i try to view the details my internet explorer blocks the download of the file? then when i allow the file and save it, it comes as an ASPX file, so i cant read it?

Anyone else had this trouble?

cheers

There is no need to register. It should download as a PDF file and open up in your browser.

Cheers chris, I think my internet explorer is blocking it. I am not tecno in these things? it keeps opening/saving in the ASPX form.
