WDYTYALive! 2016 Military Checkpoint

The Military Checkpoint at WDYTYA Live 2016 is sponsored by Ogilby Trust.

These men, some of whom are ex-military, provide help to genealogists in identifying uniforms from photos, medals, and providing details about regiment histories. They are a hard working group and have attended WDYTYA for the past 4 years that I am aware of. I always enjoy meeting up with them to discuss military and archive news.
