G'day all, Just wondering what everyone's experience has been with a Freedom of Information request from the National Archives. I sent a FOI request via email roughly mid April of this year concerning a record they hold regarding my recently deceased grandfather. The record I'm after is a WWII POW card of my grandfather who was in the British army and captured by the Germans in Belgium in 1940. About a week after I sent the request I received a reply email letting me know they can't proceed with the request as it may relate to a living individual which was understandable. I sent a copy of my grandfather's death certificate as proof of his passing and awaited their reply. Towards the end of May I received another email informing me that there was a slight problem. Apparently the details on my grandfather's death certificate and the details in their records didn't match. They didn't say what exactly didn't match but I was asked to confirm the full date of birth of my grandfather which I of course provided. The person handling the request has been nothing but polite and considerate. They said in the email "I am hoping this detail will match up to what is in the record and resolve the problem." What I am wondering is will there be an issue if my grandfather potentially lied about his age to join the army? Has anyone else had a similar issue with their relative's DOB given to the MOD and their actual DOB not matching? We understand he joined the TA in January 1939 when he would have been not yet 18. We don't know for sure but we assumed he lied about his age. I included this information and our assumptions in my reply email. I haven't yet received a reply so I am hoping I am informed of an outcome one way or the other. I understand these things take time, especially during these times of Covid-19. Does anyone have a rough idea of how long it took to receive their requested record from time of initial request to delivery? Another thing I am wondering is if the record is approved, will it be sent digital via email or physical via post? Thank you for any help. Kind regards and apologies for the wall of text. Cheers, Dan.
