« on: Tuesday 22 May 18 16:24 BST (UK) »
On the National Archives website I found my Grandad's brother has 2 sets of records,one dated 1918 and the second 1925 -1939.Why two sets ? What information will they give me ?Should I pay to download both ?
Thanks for any help.

The second set looks like the Continuous Record cards which cover that period (the individuals may not have served throughout the whole period). 

I'd certainly suggest getting both records although if you can check Ancestry and FindMyPast first, the former has most of them.

Many thanks for your reply.
My subs to both sites have run out so I'll look at getting them from the archives.
Thanks again for your help.
