Why not post it on the deciphering board.  :-\
You should only post parts that you need deciphering/expalining it and not the whole document

Forgive me Rosie but if deciphering actually means interpretation of the army jargon (which it usually does in cases of army records) - isn't it better on one or other of the Armed Forces boards?

Sorry MaxD,

I was not clear as to what was wanted.  Whatever it is, it does need to be shown on one of the boards so everyone can see it.  I did not think that we are allowed to show whole pages hence my other comment.

I have not seen anything saying whole sheets of an army record cannot be posted.  Indeed extracts can often only be interpreted by reference to one or more other sheets.  There are any number of examples of the mods moving "record deciphering" from Handwriting etc to the appropriate Armed Forces board - one example -  http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=742815.msg5895203#msg5895203

No doubt dismo will clarify what he/she wants in another post.
