    Im currently in the process of obtaining some family military records and thanks to this website, it is going really well. I have tried to do everything without having to subscribe to any of the numerous websites out there. I have now found some info on my uncle who was RAMC during WW2, namely 7521227 Eddie James. I also have 2 x medals which I believe belong to him which I would like to get mounted professionally.

    It looks like he is on the British Army casualty list 1939-1945 but to view this information I will need to upgrade my membership and pay. Is there any way of viewing this info without paying or alternately, is there anyone out there with an active account for these sites that can get this information for me. Ive just paid out £41 to get my grandads army records and am trying to keep costs down. Cheeky I know but worth asking I reckon. Thank you so much everyone.

    Hi Jim,
    It costs £30 to obtain a service man's record.
    If you don't mind me asking why did,and to whom, did you pay £41 ?

    Well done Jim, Some guys do get ripped off attempting to obtain records from other sites, just wanted to make sure it wasn't you.
