War Service Reports database now deployed

The War Service Reports database (including the VAD profiles) is now available on this website.

It is also included in the "All Databases" searches.

We have taken the opportunity to restructure the data such that a lot of duplication has been removed, but you may still find more than one entry for the same person.

Reports have been taken from numerous sources, particularly entries on War Memorials and Rolls of Honour, but also from newspaper articles and biographical information provided by family members, and the Imperial War Museum's "Lives of the First World War" (LOTFWW) project.

Links are given to sources such as LOTFWW, the Commonwealth War Grave Commission, and the Virtual War memorials of the Dominions including Australia, New Zealand and Canada. 

To search the information we hold, go to War Service Reports

There are also links to the Cemeteries on the Island if a person is buried here, and the Northwood and Gurnard War Memorials project, and the Memorials and Monuments on the Isle of Wight website.
