Records of Britain’s everyday heroes go online for the first time

Over half a million records covering 100 years of the militia – the forerunner of The British Territorial Army – are published online at www.findmypast.co.uk/ for the first time

These records provide unique descriptions of what your ancestors actually looked like.  The British militia was recruited from all over the world. 

The Militia Service Records, covering 1806 to 1915, have been made available online for the first time to coincide with British Armed Forces Day on Saturday.
