Our ‘war cards’ are a distinct set of records, which differ slightly from the other collections. These records do not appear when you use the main search function. Instead, you will need to use the dedicated war cards search to find individuals in this collection. Dedicated search fields and filters can help to make your results more accurate.
How can I narrow my search?
Why is the text in some of the fields slightly different from the text on the war card?
Transcriptions have been prepared to represent the original content recorded on the war card as closely as possible. However, for ease of reading and to facilitate accurate search results, some abbreviations and names have been expanded; dates standardised; and certain spelling and grammatical errors corrected. Any information that appears to be crossed out in the handwritten notes has been placed in square brackets in the transcription.
Why is the “date of death” field not completed for every individual whose death is recorded in the “history with the forces” field?
This field has only been completed where we are confident the date is correct and it has been verified in accordance with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission database.
