Records of a distinguished British Army Division from WW1 now available on CD

As we approach Remembrance Day and a time to contemplate the wars and conflicts of the past, it’s a time when many people decide to look at the war service and records of their ancestors. The major World Wars involved so many of our ancestors that most families were touched by the events of the time.

The military data CDs at S&N Genealogy Supplies are a useful research point in finding out more information about events and military history from the major conflicts. If you have an ancestor who served with the 25th Division in World War One, or if you have a general interest in military history, the new CD -‘The 25th Division in France and Flanders’ may be of interest. This CD looks at the operations and events of this Salisbury based Division that experienced many of the major battles of World War One.
