    Wow, that's some skewing towards 1945, I suppose there were quite a few outstanding accounts to settle by then.

    Some for 1939 are pre-war
    79,933 in total in the collection.

    Cheers for that Geoff.

    I would guess a couple of the big contributions to the 1945 total would be PoWs and foreign awards after the war.

    I should know a bit more in the next few days, I hope to knock out some spreadsheets on this. Might be huge though. Blame dbf, her posts got me started on this :mellow:

    There certainly is a lot of MiD's missing. I did hear from a publisher that they are trying to compile a book of all WW2 MiD's though.

    I wonder if all the medals missing online is due to the citation being missing or is they have just missed copying it and still have the hardcopy within the files.

    Only 20 VC's listed out of 182 WW2 ones.

    I had to trawl through 140,000 pages to get these. About 60,000 from a total of 80,000 found, so I still have 20,000 to find. Dunno what the VCs are doing there - should be in WO 98.

    I'm only about 3/4 of the way through my Harvest (or is it Scrape?). I've included a small sample here (HTML so it can be viewed easy). I've limited it to only those with something to do with Signals for this sample (no particular reason). As you see the unit name is far from regular, so sorting on this is going to be probably impossible. I can put this into a spreadsheet or web file, but the final version is likely to be several files as it will be huge. Not sure how to divide up the files or how to get the best out of this yet........


    Note, this file is BIG(ish):

    keep on scraping....:huh:

    Ditto and great stuff !

    Regarding spliting it into sections, I think categories of units:

    1=Infantry

    2=Armour

    3=Artillery

    4=Engineers and Signals

    5=Others ie RASC, RAOC, CMP etc.

    OR By Campaign areas:

    1=Europe

    2=Africa

    3=Middle East

    4=Far East

    5=Others

    Regarding spliting it into sections, I think categories of units:...


    Might be a problem doing it this way. There are over 15,000 different descriptions of 'units' on the data I have so far. Putting these into bins would be difficult - I would need a computerized solution, way too many to do manually.


    OR By Campaign areas: ...

    This would be much easier, there are only 91, so far, and some of these can be binned together and the process automated.

    There is an interesting spread of awards over campaigns. What I have so far:

    Geoff - how is it going?

    Pretty good. Found 54,994 out of a possible 55,023 (think thats all there is for 39-46?). I've just put them into groups by campaign, I've put them into 20 groups and therefore have 20 HTML files at the moment, but Exel would be possible. Might need a global index though. What is not possible (without a lot of effort) is an easy way of finding each recommendation in the big microfilm files. The only clue is the WO reference.

    ... unless page no.s were added manually ... how's about a big push from all those interested, eh? A file at a time? [Have a feeling I might be a lone voice in the desert here.]

    I've already inputted page no.s for 373/48 - NWE file.

    Geoff, those other 29 aren't under 1947 or 1948 are they ?
    No. The figure of 55,023, I got by searching the NA for each month in 39-46. I added the results for these to get this total (might have made an error - did not double check my adding). The total I've found (54,994) are all those found for these same 39-46 dates in my downloads. The NA files can be stored in a weird order (but not as weird as CWGC) and I may have missed them, being in another block, or I may have just mis-counted.

    There could be WW2 recommendations dated 47 or 48 - possible? I'll need to check this also.
     
  20. Drew5233

    Drew5233 #FuturePilot Patron 1940 Obsessive

    Not sure, although I always search 39 to 48 for some reason -Probably just to cover myeself for any late entries/recommendations.
