I have posted about this on the Genealogy Chat board but the link will serve better on this thread for now (I think)

For the will of a soldier who died while serving in the British armed forces between 1850 and 1986

NOTE; They are being digitised in time for next year's centenary of WWI so not complete yet and the site says it can take up to 10 days before your download is ready

3rd September 2013 – A round-up of the latest suggestions from the Suggestions Board:

• Please move a military research tips thread into the new military chat board
- We've compiled a list of threads that should be moved to the two new boards – Military Chat and Hobbies & Crafts – this one has been added in. The changes should be made today.

Hi Joy, the changes will be made. Unfortunately they couldn't be made on Tuesday but I have requested that the threads be moved across as soon as possible.
