Help with service record
« on: Tuesday 24 March 09 20:39 GMT (UK) »
Hello again,
This is another part of the Service Record of my Great Great Grandfather who was a Royal Marine 1866-1887and I have tried to crop it to a smaller size.
It is some dates that I am unable to read.
I will attach but if it does not work would you please let me know so I can try again. It is all new to me but I want to try.
                                  Thankyou maggy-edna

Hi Maggy-edna  :)

You might have to crop just portions of it so that we can see it bigger - as it is it's too tiny to read anything  :-\

Also, if you put a message on the general Armed Forces board, with a link back to this topic (copy and paste this link: http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,370705.0.html)   that will bring the folks there out of the woodwork to have a look  ;) :)

Cheers
Prue
