Links to service records now available
With the assistance of our colleagues at the National Archives of Australia, readers of this blog can go straight to selected service records using hyperlinks we've provided in the text of our posts. These digitised records allow you to read much more about the background, service experience and fate of some members of the Australian Imperial Force.
For example, in an earlier post about our exhibition we mentioned Sgt Charles Reginald Yells (aka 'Lewis' in Seven pillars of wisdom). If you view his service record, you will be able to see on page 17 of that record, a reference to his work with Lawrence in an attack on an enemy railway line for which he was awarded the DCM.
