I sent all my docs to Scotland for my Fathers Army records 21 months ago, can anyone please tell me how long you have to wait for a reply,?
Kind regards.

I doubt anyone on GR could give you the answer, Have you tried contacting them to ask that question.

That seems too long - I know they are slow, but not usually that slow! Perhaps you could ring them to chase them up.

Definately ring them up. If you paid by cheque or credit card check your records to see if and when check/payment was cleared and then you have this to hand when calling them.

10 months is about the longest I have ever heard of. Mine took 8 months and that was a few years ago. And I know the time has not changed much.

They are very helpful (I know I had to call them.
