Service Records

I know that service records for men still serving after 1921 are not publicly available but can next of kin get copies and, if so, who do they have to contact to do so?

Sorry for asking this question again - I am sure this has come up before - but cannot find the relevant thread.

Many thanks.

One small addition to the above. The RMLI/RMA (long service) service papers at the Fleet Air Arm Museum contain enlistments up to late 1924. Men who enlisted in 1924 could serve for pension until well after WW2. There are also numerous other records relating to service in WW2. These papers are usually for men (e.g. pensioners and RFR) who were recalled for service in late 1939. Most did not see action with the RM Commando forces (too old) but many served in DEMS and there are often detailed records of their movements therein. It should not be assumed that all post-1921 RM records are only at the NA.

Tell us the unit to which you refer and you might get something specific

In WW1 he was an Air Mechanic in the RFC/RAF (June 1915-February 1919).

Post war he enlisted (January 1920) in the Royal Engineers and, after just under 6 years left the Royal Signals on 24 November 1925.

Thanks.

Neil
