FindMyPast claims to have 12.5 million military records covering:
The Boer War;
World War 1;
World War 2;
Civil War and rebellion;
Medal rolls and honours;
Regimental service records.
I've had excellent results from the FindMyPast's military collection in the past dating back to the 1700s and early 1800s, so get over there and start searching. It is a great opportunity to try and fill in some of the blanks for your military ancestors.
You will need to register if you don't have an account with FindMyPast already (but you won't need to provide your birth date which is optional).
Feel free to share this post with any friends or family who might be interested.
