    My request was actually my cousin applying for the records of her husband so no £’s at all involved.
    I must admit the speed of return shocked me

    I'm going to dive back in soon. This will be the third of my grandfather's brothers, who also served in India and Burma.

    Good afternoon.
    Does anyone know if Service Record requests are being processed at this time, with the Services being involved in Coronavirus help?

    Hi,

    It’s MOD civil servants who deal with the applications not serving military/naval/air force personnel.

    However there may be a delay as they will likely have reduced staff and distance working procedures on their premises.

    There have been suggestions that "non essential" civil servants in the MOD will be diverted to other duties, for example contact tracing. I suppose much depends on how "essential" processing service record requests are deemed to be.

    Hi All,

    Do we have a definitive telephone number for contacting Glasgow please? I've got a couple on file, but they are for individual staff members up there, who have dealt with my past enquiries. A few of my Chindit Society families are coming back to me worried about the lack of communication from up to 5/6 months ago. I know that coronavirus has severely disrupted the service, but want to help these families with other ways to contact the MOD offices. I've already got the generic email, but was looking for the equivalent telephone number.

    Thanks to all.
