Soldiers' Wills

You may have seen the news story a month or so ago about soldiers wills - read about it on the bbc website

Basically 230,000 wills and final letters were retained by the MOD, presumably because they contained sensitive information. Those wills have been digitised and put online at https://probatesearch.service.gov.uk/
It's free to search for a soldier but £6 per will to access them.

I put in the 47 soldiers names and found 9 names, of course it will cost £54 to view them so I will be adding this to the wishlist for my grant application.
