Also, does return postage need to be included? I havenít seen any mention of it.

No.  Be assured that if the government wanted you to pay for postage it would say so!

Thanks; I did wonder. Amazed theyíd send you it all without any additional costs, barring the administration fee of course.

There is no additional postage cost and that is the case no matter whereabouts in the world they are sending it.

Extraordinary! I wonder if that will continue, what with the growth of family history in the past few years.

I may have encountered a problem.

The ancestor I sent off forms for wasnít in the Second World War, but was in the Army between the wars. I filled out the form saying his name and date of birth (all that I know), so that partís fine. The only reason for demobilisation was the pre-ticked discharge after 1939-45 war. Will there be problems with my application now, as he served after 1920 but wasnít in the Second World War?

I doubt it unless there is someone with the same name, date of birth and death etc in WW2.  The files are not catalogued by date periods.  If the basic data you have provided is correct, they don't need any of the small additional pieces of info.

However the service records for my late mother's first cousin who was in the Royal Regiment of Artillery, (application sent at the same time) is still awaited by post (nearly 4 months).
