    Dont think this has been asked before but please correct me if I'm wrong - is there a way to obtain a persons national service record?

    There's this from the National Archives. Whether or not these are open to view, I have no idea, but if you contacted TNA I'm sure they would tell you.

    Not per se, I don't think.

    I have had a rummage amongst the National Archives research guides but they seem rather scattered and incomplete. Take a look here:
