Keyword Search Tips

When entering keywords you can use the following techniques:

  • Searches are not case sensitive so 'Somme' may be entered thus: 'somme'
  • When entering search requests for abbreviations such as D.S.O. or R.B. always include punctuation and enclose in quotes thus: "d.s.o."
  • Enclose phrases in quotes to avoid finding every instance of each word; so for Rifle Brigade type: "rifle brigade"
  • You may refine your search by entering multiple criteria; so for Smith of the Rifle Brigade type: smith "rifle brigade"
