Dorset Absent Voters Records

Can I beg help from members in getting to see these records on line. The link provided in the Long Long Trail leads to a series of sponsored ads of no value. From the medal rolls I have 3 individuals, Sidney Hounsell RFA 11289, Austin (Austen) Hounsell, MGC Cav 51901, and Lionel George Hawkins Dorsetshire 16261.

I'm hoping to find more detail on their units and theatres of service.

I would be extremely grateful for a link or any more information on how I might access these records.

Thank you

THere is a link there to the entry in the History Centre records for the 1918 Absent Voter's List. Unfortunately it doesn't open,but you could enquire for the look-ups that you need. The file reference is QD (R /3/31a. THe R is in brackets both sides but when I do that it converts to an R in a circle !!

Thanks for the suggestion. I had tracked the record in the county archives, but only the title is on line, not the actual list. I think I will end up buying a copy from them, they're relatively efficient at shipping stuff across the pond.
