Remembered Today:

Coldstream Gds records now on line FMP

Just found on FMP the Coldstream Guards discharge records on FMP  - they are post war but essential in finding details on men who served during the war and got a new number as without finding papers is near impossible

 

I had no idea these where online  - found by chance looking for something else to answer a forum members question

 

Also found plenty pre war and during too

 

wonder what else is there...

also the enlistment ledgers post war - again useful looking up those who reenlisted after the war

These records seem to have been added to the dataset British Army Service Records

https://search.findmypast.co.uk/search-world-Records/british-army-service-records

 

The description says 

"Coldstream Guards 1800-1947 This set has been made available by The Coldstream Guards Charitable Fund. It comprises of many different regimental history records including Discharge Books, Courts Martial Book, Decorations and Rewards and Officers' Statements of Services".

 

As Coldstreamer has noted the enlistment registers are also available on FMP, presumably they would also be in included in the same dataset British Army Service Records

 

These records do NOT appear in the description of the database  "British Army Service Records Image Browse" at time of writing. However there is a possibility they may be added at a later time, as I think the Scots Guards records were not originally in the Browse database, but are now available there.

Looks like they were added January

 

"Over 2,000 new Scots Guards service records have just been added to our collection of British Army Service records. These include records of Scots Guards officers, available exclusively on Findmypast and never before published, who enlisted with this prestigious regiment of foot guards between 1642 and 1939."

Im yet to search for officers stuff - cleared up quite a few anomalies already with the data now available  - much quicker than going through the old files but I do miss my trips to London
