New military records released by The National Archives

The National Archives at Kew has released two major military collections through its Documents Online service.

The first is the release of the Medal Index Cards for those who were entitled to claim medals for service within the Indian Army during the First World War. These have been released as individual index cards, as opposed to six per page as with their oiginal release of WW1 cards.

The records of Royal Naval officers have also been released through the same service. These were kept by the Admiralty from the 1840s and record service for warrant officers joining the Royal Navy up to 1931 and commissioned officers joining the service up to 1917.
