My grandads army record's
« on: Sunday 09 December 18 13:51 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone.
Can anyone tell me how long it takes to  receive  army record's from when you apply for them?

I applied for my grandads army record's on the 21st of November. I sent  everything off to the army record's department in Scotland.

I've been trying to get answers from them.to see when I will recieve them. But I'm not getting any replys back.
My hubby says he hopes it's not one of these places where you get conned like a fake place.

I told him I have the address on the letter and the form where I was told to send everything to.

If anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it.
Thank you again for your time

Ps
I received a email from the army record's department in Scotland afew months ago just before I started to save up for my grandads army record's. 

By the sounds of it. They might have my grandads army record's. 
What I don't understand is this. If they have his name and date of birth. Why is it taking long.?

I have  attached a copy of the email I received. Hopefully someone can help?

Thank you again.

Dorothy

I am afraid you  will need to be patient Dorothy, it may take some weeks for you to receive the records.

 You must understand that their first priority is to the people serving today along with service pensioners, historical records come bottom of the list. We are fortunate that waiting times are not as long as they used to be, some people had to wait months for their ancestors records, it all depends how busy they are.
