Fold 3's British Commonwealth Military Collection free

Until Sunday 13th November, 23:59hrs GMT
Fold 3, the dedicated Military Records database owned by Ancestry, is opening up a British Commonwealth Military Collection to free access this weekend.

Free access will be available until 23:59hrs GMT on Sunday 13 November. You need to register for an account if you don't already have one, but only your email address and a password are required from you. No financial details are requested.

The records include British and Australian records sets, including WW1 War Diaries, the surviving WW1 Service Records, Medal Rolls and Army Lists.

Also up for free viewing are the trio of pensioner collections released earlier this week (see blogpost for more details): Royal Hospital Chelsea Pensioner Admission & Discharge Records, Royal Hospital Chelsea Pensioner Soldier Service Records, and the Royal Hospital Kilmainham (Dublin) Pensioner Records.
