    For Australian records go here: http://www.naa.gov.au
    You can order an online copy or a scanned colour copy delivered to you.
    After purchase you should expect the records in between 1-3 months.

    I made this its own thread. It is too important to just be an add-on.

    Excellent link and info, thingimibob. Also, good eye picking up on this one, Lou. Well worth pinning.

    Thankyou. An example of a record is this units record.

    G'day I have had my fathers records for some time and have been having difficulty in understanding them and some of the abbreviations used. I know that he was in the intelligence corps but units and other things I don't. If I downloaded the page/s would someone in the know be able to interpret them for me thanks in advance.

    This is one of the best sites I know of for that sort of help. You might want to start a new thread for it in the info request sub forum though. Be sure and mention the nationality (in the thread title is best IMO) some forget to do so and get some irrelevant info as a result.
