Depositing Records In The National Archives

The Ministry of Defence has asked for views on the transfer of historic records to The National Archives (TNA). The Ministry of Defence has launched a public consultation process regarding
the transfer of historic Armed Forces Service Personnel records to The
National Archives (TNA).

Members of the public are being asked for their views on the process the
Ministry of Defence has developed to transfer to The National Archives
records of soldiers, sailors and airmen who served in the Armed Forces
between the two World Wars and for those who were members of the Home Guard
during the Second World War.

1. The steps "a" to "d" as proposed by the MOD seem appropriate. Given these safeguards outlined in the MOD paper, the  importance of the data to family of the personnel, historians and researchers and the vast amount of data involved it would seem unreasonable not to "open" the data as and when proposed or to to expect the MOD to do more than they propose in their consultation paper ( ).I have therefore replied as stated above to the MOD public consultation.

2. Is the society putting representations to the MOD?

3. It is of course up to the MOD or their agents to carry out their safeguard proposals. I note with interest that the MOD ask in their paper "if there is more than could reasonably be done?". Quite obviously they mean "if there is more that could reasonably be done". Lets hope if they go ahead that they publish the rules to their agents without spelling mistakes as these can alter the meaning of an instruction!!

Dear Tony,
Thank you for your comment and in replying directly to the MOD.
The Committee needed Member's thoughts on the matter so that a two pronged approach could be adopted.
1. As you did a direct approach from the Committee.
2. As we are a member of the Federation of Family History Societies (FFHSs), a recognised authorititive organisation, to persuade it submit its general view on the subject.
The more people who write directly the better.

That’s great news. I think each of us who are looking for geolaengy for the sake of their own ancestors always wants to keep the records most scientific way so that it could be easily achieved. It is a lengthy process no doubt about it but if we show our patience then we definitely can have the best fruit from it.
