      Subject: [AYR] Remembrance Day

      In honour of Remembrance Day, Ancestry is opening up millions of military
      records to give everyone the chance to journey back in time and discover the
      war heroes in their family http://www.anrdoezrs.net/click-7281757-11582783

      Between 08 and 12 November 2013, 3.6 million records will be freely
      available from four important military collections:

      WWI Service Records (1914 - 1920)
      WWII Army Roll of Honour (1939 - 1945)
      Navy Medal and Roll Awards (1793 - 1972) Victoria Cross Medals (1857 - 2007)

      Almost every family in the country will have relatives who once served their
      country, so these records are an excellent source of discovery.

      Travel back through 100 years of military history to find physical
      descriptions, next of kin, medals awarded, places served, disciplinary
      procedures, photos, dates and places of death ? and much more.

      New WWII collection

      Ancestry has added new Civilian War Dead records from WWII, which hold the
      names of 60,000 civilians who perished during the Second World War. People
      died in their homes, offices, factories, schools and public vehicles during
      the terrifying bombings and air raids.
      London was hardest hit so the London Boroughs have lengthy casualty lists,
      but the collection also covers many other cities, including Manchester,
      Birmingham, Nottingham and York.
