Forces War Records Purchased by Ancestry

Haven't seen it elsewhere here, on the forum, but just read that Ancestry.com have purchased the the content of Forces War Records from its owners, Clever Digital Media.

Not sure how old this news is but the blurb says they want to link it with their other military records - I'm taking that to mean they will put it up on Ancestry rather than Fold3.

I'm taking that they will use to increase subscription! Or am I just cynical?

Cynical  as usual 

I suspect Ancestry will continue to run Forces war records as a stand alone military records site

no mention anywhere, that the records of Forces war records are being merged on Ancestry

It would help if Ancestry added the original documents that FWR have transcribed, I distrust transcriptions alone.

Then it may be of value to do a 1 month subscription and go nuts downloading everything I am interested in.

If not, well then, yawn...

Quite Interesting.  FWR have not  had access to any substantial records. Most of their business has been through  already officially published records.
