Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - GEM FROM THE ARCHIVE -

My fa­ther’s rank and reg­i­ment is printed on a ro­bust wooden box I still use for my daugh­ter’s toys. If you have sim­i­lar arte­facts in your fam­ily ar­chive, you may be able to con­firm your re­la­tion’s reg­i­ment. If so, you can go to this web­site, run by the Ogilby Trust, which is a gate­way to 139 mil­i­tary mu­se­ums across the UK. Some have de­posited their ar­chives with county record of­fices, while oth­ers keep on-site ar­chives. Although they don’t hold ser­vice records, they can help you find out about a reg­i­ment’s post-war his­tory – where units or bat­tal­ions were sta­tioned at par­tic­u­lar times. Browse mu­se­ums via the home­page map, or search by col­lec­tion or reg­i­ment.
