The collection is described as follows:
About UK, Military Indexes, 1920-1971
Within These Records
These lists comprise the names and service numbers of those who were discharged from the armed forces after 1920 and born before 1901. Details given for over 300,000 individuals found within this collection may include (where available):
- Initial and Surname
- Date of Birth
- Their Service
- Service Number
- Ministry of Defence Reference Number
The source for the collection is very vaguely described as "Contains public sector information licensed under the Open Government Licence v3.0", but appears to be from the National Archives in England.
