Just seen this “new”? Dataset but it doesn’t seem to be available on the free uk weekend ::)

UK, WWI Pension Ledgers and Index Cards, 1914-1923, released from Western Front Association... seems to be on Ancestry.com (US site) but not free

https://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?htx=List&dbid=61588

There are a couple of records on there I have found but cannot view... can anyone check to see if it’s available with a sub or do I need a fold 3 sub too

Austin Langford Creed and George William Burdett

Thanks
